Gravity Vs Money - Poem by Slava Olchevski

Power of gravity is physical
Power of money is mental
Let’s find out for ourselves
Which one is stronger and more elemental?

And for as long as I could remember
Power of gravity stays the same
Power of money is always growing
Growing, growing until it’s insane

Power of gravity drags you down
Allow you firmly to stand on your feet
Power of money will fly you over
To Paris, Rome, New York or Madrid

To prove ones and for all
In a very bold experiment
I will dropp one hundred dollars bill
On New York city street pavement

I tried and tried, time and again
Results were consistent, always the same
Even if nobody was standing around
The bill almost never hit the ground!
