In a society that cares only for possession
where greed has become the mainstay
and monetarism the idol replacing spiritual connection,
the wealth of humanity is discarded.

We have lost sight of what is important in this world
eclipsed it with a false idol so beguiling,
almost all have fallen under its sway.
We exist to work,
we are told we work for a living,
yet we give our lives so cheaply,
spend our limited time so frivolously that few of us manage to live at all;
Except as slaves to monetarism and possession,
to the ideal of individuation.

And yet we fail to see
that those with mountains of wealth,
are the most impoverished among us.
