Say the rich to all other folk, “Let’s Keep Them Poor
Rather than let them in on how to attain wealth…”
As if there’s a finite amount of resources.
The economy is run by evil forces
Hellbent on keeping people declining in health
And in constant need of a financial savior.
If the job doesn’t pay well, or does not exist,
Or is so damned disgusting that it takes its toll
On the spirit, it’s certainly time for a change.
I have just enough freedom. I can rearrange
My perceptions regarding money as a whole
While detaching from thinking of how to subsist.
Children never are taught about money in school.
Government tells us what can and cannot be taught.
We learn how to get jobs – not to think on our own
About how to create wealth. Instead we are shown
How to be slaves of honor and get ourselves caught
In a losing life cycle. What could be more cruel?
Things that children should learn should be naturally –
Like accounting and business, finances and debt,
And how all world economies do interact.
The Monopoly game is much closer to fact.
But will wisdom become us? With all due regret,
Human nature can’t let that be reality.
