The Wealthy Getting Wealthier

The gap between the wealthy and the poor keeps on widening by the day
In a fair Human World it would not be this way
For a few for to win so many destined to lose
Though living poor is a thing so few ever would choose
The wealthy getting wealthier and the poor getting poorer though not a surprise
It does seem a bit sad for one to realize
The poor of the human family to be found everywhere
There are millions of them in the big World out there
From drought ravaged regions and war zones every day in their thousands they do flee
The future is so uncertain for every refugee
The workings of humanity seems beyond me to explain
Why somebody's loss becomes somebody's gain
And that one does grow wealthier at another expense
Of this i do struggle for to make any sense.
