Isn't ... Less ... ?
Sometimes ... MORE ... ?
  
Those Words Sound GOOD ...  
If You're ... NOT POOR ... !!!  
  
But Money ... Doesn't ...
Give You ... " LIFE " ...  
And Life Is NOT ...
Defined By ... Price ... !!!
  
But ....
Is That ... Right ... ?!?
  
Some Would Say ...
it Makes Them ... " SMILE " ... !!!
  
Now This DEFINES ...
Those In ... " DENIAL " ... !!!  
  
It's Not My Way ...
To Make You Pay ...
For Things That People ...
Like To Say ...
  
But ... Writing Things ...
Helps EASE The Rage ...
I Feel Today ... !!!
  
Because of ... " GREED " ...
That ... Leads To PAIN ... !!!!!
  
That's Why I'm Asking ... ?
What's The Score ... ?
  
Isn't ... Less ... ?
Sometimes MORE ... ?
  
Cos' GREED Is Something ...
I ... " DEPLORE " ... !!!!!
  
Money Fuels ...
A ... LOT of Wars ...  
Where People DIE ... !!!!!!
  
So ...
How's That ... RIGHT ... ?!?
  
More DEATH Than Life ...  
Sees People ... CRY ... !!!!!!!!!
  
Tears ... And Eyes ...
Don't Be Surprised ...
If Words I ... Speak ...  
DARKEN ... Sunlight ... !!!
  
In ... Todays' Times ...  
While Writing Rhymes ...
I Use My Mind ...
To Find ... SUNSHINE ... !!!
  
I Have ... Less Cash ...
Than ... EVER BEFORE ... !!!!!
And Face A Life ...
of Being ... " POOR " ...
  
That's ...  
NOT FOR SURE ... !!!
But Money's Made ...
PAIN In Me ... " SOAR " ... !!!
  
ARGUMENTS ...
To Get Some CASH ...  
Are ... DANGEROUS ... !!!!!
And Make Some ... " CLASH " ... !!!!!!!
  
I'd Rather Have ..... " LESS " .... !!!
Than ... MORE of That ... !!!!!  
  
Mums And Dads .....
Now FIGHT For Cash ... ?
  
Ignoring ... Daughters ... ?!?
And Their Lads ... !?!
  
These Are Things ...
NOT GOOD But ... BAD ... !!!!!
  
EVEN ... Fathers ... !!!
And Their SONS ... !!!!!
Will Go To ... " Court " ... ?!?
  
Now THAT'S NOT FUN ... !!!!!
  
Over ... MONEY ... ?!?
Come On Now ..... !!!  
  
That's Just As BAD ... !!!
As ... Gun-Type Sounds ... !!!
  
LESS Violence ... !!!
Is ... BETTER THAN MORE ... !!!!!
  
Like ... LESS DEFIANCE ...
Breeds ... LESS War ... !!!!!  
  
MORE ... Aggression ... !!!
FEEDS ... Depression ... !!!
  
These Are Things ...
I'd Like To ... LESSEN ... !!!  
  
Sometimes LESS TALK ...
And MORE ACTION ...
Can Bring You ... YES ...
  
.... " Satisfaction " .... !!!!!
  
And That's A ... FACT ... !!!
DON'T ... DISMISS That ... !!!!!
  
But It's ... GOOD To Talk ... !!!
When ... Building Forts ... !!!!!
  
BUT ... !!!  
  
NOT A Fortress ...
Just For ... " YOU " ... !!!
  
... " REMEMBER " ... !!!
OTHER People ... FOOL ... !!!!!  
  
May Take ... Because ...  
They Want That TOO ... !!!!!
  
That's What ... MORE ...
Can Sometimes ... " DO " ...  
  
Make People ...
  
JEALOUS ... of You ... !!!!!
  
And Make Them ... PULL ...
The DARKEST ... Moves ... !!!!!
  
If You ...  
Haven't Got A Thing ...
What's There To ... Take ... ???
  
I Guess This View ...  
Is Not The Way ...
  
But Look Around You ...
... " NOWADAYS " ... !!!
  
Can You Say I'm Wrong ... ?
At The ... End of The Day ... ?!?
  
SOME Will **** YOU ... !!!
For ... " Your CHAIN " ... !?!
  
I'm Thinking ...
Some Folk ... Are INSANE ... !!!!!
  
Check .... NEW ORLEANS ... !!!
When Facing ... " DEATH " ... !!! ...
  
Some Were Stealing ...
..... " TV Screens " ..... !!!!! ? !!!!!!
  
Instead of ... HELPING ...
Those Who ... SCREAMED ... ?!?
  
Come On Now Folks ...
See What I Mean ... !?!
  
Money ... Breeds ...
RUTHLESS Street Teams ... !!!
  
Who Then Do Things ...
That Are ... OBSCENE ... !!!!!
  
Happiness ...
  
Means MORE To Me ...
Than .... " ANY SUM " ....  
of ... Cash Money ... !!!!!!
  
Times Right Now ...
Have Made Me SEE ... !!!
  
Money ... CAN'T ...
Fulfil ... My Dreams ... !!!
  
LESS ****** ........
Gives Us ..... MORE LIFE ..... !!!!
And Helps To KEEP ...
Our Race ... " ALIVE " ... !!!!!
  
ALL ... Colour Types ... !!!
From ... Black To White ...  
  
LESS Division ...
  
Helps MORE ... " UNITE " ... !!!!!  
  
And THAT ... For Sure ... !!!
Is ... Better Than WAR ... !!!
  
And NOW ... Has Made ...
My Mind ... EXPLORE .........................................
  
This ...  
Simple Question ....  
  
" Isn't Less ... Sometimes MORE ... ? "
An interesting question to explore poetically ......
