Love of it is
the ROOT of all
Yet there is no
we can do without
beggars & rich
old & young
men & women
all go in search of it.
Some spill or shed
blood for it,
others loose their
MORALS & dignity
for it.
Our societies are
Ethically corrupted
by it.
Minds are filled with
Hideous thoughts on
how to acquire it.
It has created unaltruist
Source of it's power
still remains CRYPT.
Both of us are blinded
by its hocus-pocus
we've lost our sense
of NOUS and
fell in love with papers
and COINS.
as they say money makes the world go round. we're so much concerned on how to acquire it that we've forgotten all about our humane side...
