Money - Man's Quirkiest Invention - Poem by narayana aghalaya

Money -man's quirkiest invention
.
the simple means to make men work
show this carrot - be sure none will shirk
either honest or not
with it anything is bought
to acquire beyond needs, it.needs.a quirk
.
like nothing else, it greases leaders' palms
stop its supply, they lose their calm
with it mighty.doors open
if lost, the heart is broken
if.not enough, one says ' I am damned '
.
for some, to talk about it, is vulgar
why? are all.like the Horrible Hagar?
the poor buy.bread and butter
the rich buy things to clutter
have too much? it shows in the.swagger
.
