Finders' keepers, loser weepers?

The old English adage that is based on an ancient Roman law still finds a way to make a home within modern society. Children taunt each other on the playground with a singsong version of "finders' keepers, loser weepers!" when they discover something left behind, and the owner is nowhere in sight. As innocent as it seems, keeping a found object that does not belong to you is a form of stealing. (Yes, this includes money).
