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.
