This One Or That One

One begins to play the corporate game
Grabbing for power, wealth, and fame
Slowly dying by their very own hand
Ignoring truth, where they used to stand
How much can I make, it is their bottom line
Thinking this creed will stand, against the test of time
Throwing change to the homeless, this one becomes so very proud
Forgetting there are millions starving, this one covers them with a shroud
Then there is one that is enlightened, their wealth a humble amount
