The poem is below.


Think about it 
even within 
your own family
between sisters

Cousins and aunt's 
uncle brothers 
and sons
you probably have 

One hundred people
One hundred people 
saving ten dollars a week
Is a thousand dollars

Fifty two thousand
dollars per year
the deposit for a house
every year

The growth of family
read the book
Rich Dad Poor Dad

teaches you to build wealth
invest in four house's
them use the wealth

to create a company
working as a family
you could make 
a better life

working as a family
you could create work
for your children
and others

Save the world
invest in your future
creating wealth for yourself
makes your country healthy

Teach your kids 
to be plumbers

Every company 
is created by investment
combine knowledge 
with investment for growth
