It's By Hundreds - Poem by linus gerald

It's a good fortune when you earn by thousands of hundreds
Since your shopping and travel destinations will be by hundreds
You get a plot in an upmarket area with acreage in hundreds
Investing in bonds and equities numbering tens of hundreds
So as not to be left out in the Forbes list of top a hundred
This is the daily life of a few hundreds

There are other millions who survive on a hundred
With large families numbering hundreds
But with the prices of basic commodities gone to hundreds
They are left wondering where to get the other hundred
It is for this they search covering kilometers in hundreds
Only to get back to their nests with not more than a hundred

The price of unga (flour) has gone past a hundred
Sugar is skyrocketing to threes of hundreds
Bread is happily approaching the hundred
Making millions cry as comfort remains for a few hundreds
The society is controlled by the same few hundreds
Since they can buy their way using their thousands of hundreds

The dollar has just run into a hundred
As politicians come in hundreds
Earning hourly allowances in tens of hundreds
With intention not to aid those earning a hundred
But to amass more and protect their millions of hundreds
To gain this they manipulate and use those who earn a hundred
Setting them against each other with only a hundred
Thus hundred fighting another hundred and forever remaining with a hundred
