Have you ever considered where wealth comes from

Have you ever considered where wealth comes from? When in our history had wealth begun? Is it a man-made concept, which has become The fabric of our existence beneath our sun? Yet consider a man, left all alone On our planet, no object did he not own; Where is the wealth? How could it be shown? With no one to compare he is worthless, as a stone. Wealth only exists if we can compare Against our fellow man, with whom we share An existence, though we must be aware, Wealth is an illusion; that is our despair.

I agree wholeheartedly! … Nevertheless: Give me two scoops of this illusion, please. Pile it high. I'll smile and say cheese! ... Thanks for your consideration! :) gw
