Reaping the Rap of Mistake


~Based on the gross pay scale of poverty
    World based capitalism is illusion  
    Loss doth net the sum, eventually 
    The poor will never reap an inclusion 
    This is a rich get richer delusion 

~Wealthy plan assures poverty full-blown 
     Labor for the rich until mind is gone 
     While the rich enjoy their ill gotten stash 
     Take up the truth and prove, the rich eat stone  
     A stone of truth, upon which teeth will gnash 
For DR Ram
And Contest: Dizain

    Sooo true, John. I wish my PhD sister had the wisdom you impart in this poem. Congratulations on your big win in Dr. Ram's contest. Talking to you is always helpful to me, dear friend. Sometimes I think we are stranded on an island of thought together, speaking only to each other as most don't understand. I see Dr. Ram could join us on that island. So happy for your victory! Love, Carolyn

    Enjoyed this poem today and reminds me of a show I watched last night where tv went into a wealthy man's house or mansion and they were showing a rich stash of things and all I could think of were the poor starving people on the globe. I thought to myself what a waste and if I had that kind of money I would not be buying such trivial things like a statue for 500,000 dollars. Utter waste. love phyl
