New Sources Of Gold And Silver

New Sources Of Gold And Silver

C.1 Q.53

Alas, how we will see a great nation sorely tormented
and the holy law in utter ruin
All of Christianity under the laws of others
when a new source of gold and silver is discovered

New Sources of Gold and Silver

Who needs gold or silver
When one has commodities
As if only oil is the only new source
Of new gold and silver discovered

And what of the working class
Who have their money invested
In the markets…

Yes the rich keep getting richer
And the poor keep getting poorer
As the rich rob the working mans pension investments
The prices of goods keep going up
And the portions of said goods
Keeps getting smaller…

And yes…The stinking Oil could be
Another source…

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
