acquisition

no nation, no state, no corporation
no family, no self, no nebulous soul
enriches itself by acquisition
to gain its stuff but lose control

equality is the rule of life
because any thing that is acquired
must be relinquished by another
balancing the equation is required

the take or give we do to live
determines quality of fulfillment
with less is more, we're all in store
for days of joy and contentment

don't need no plane or border gain
to bring more meaning to our lives
believe the purpose is in the sharing
with friends and laughs we will survive
