MUST MONEY MAKE MAN MAD

Must money make man mad? Money makes man mad Meanwhile, man made money Must millions make man mad? Massive money many mention Mighty materials, man’s main mandate Making many mentally magnetic Mean money might mar man Con-men crave catching cash consistently Committing crimes continuously Consequently, they’re caught, captured, killed While we wonder where we’re We want wealth which withers When we wouldn’t wake We wouldn’t work without weighing ways When we weigh madness with mildness We would work with wisdom When we work wisely, We would win MUSE: AKINDELE OLUWAJIMI

For your consideration... Consequently, creeps caught, canned, cremated???? Why not omit words like "and?" when the form implicitly lacks rhythm?
