Living in a materialistic world,
Where money has a fastening hold,
Where gold has an exasperating fold,
Love and relations wear away in cold,
Mercy and compassion look old,
Where jealousy and greed appear bold,
As monetary gains fabulously enfold.
Different kinds of money reign supreme,
Colors black and white take the cream,
It gets concealed in the beam
White money flows with the stream,
It adds revenue to the tax scheme,
As financial profits accrue the steam.
Economy is controlled by the powerful,
Wealth is circumscribed by the deceitful
World at large is influenced by the tactful,
Prosperity is found among the handful,
Poverty oppresses the truthful,
As money gleams wonderful.
