There Is Power In Money - Poem by Francis Duggan

Suppose what always has been can be nothing new
The majority of the wealth and the material assets of the World is owned by the few
And millions of people in extreme poverty
It is money and lack of it creates inequality
Money is power as the wise one does say
There is so much emphasis placed on it today
The greedy one who last year made a million in profit this year is aiming for two
Money as is said can work wonders for you
The person with plenty of money many look up to and admire
And to be like her or him is someting to they do aspire
That the paper currency speaks every language happens to be true
And to have millions of it a dream many pursue
There is power in money as most would agree
This is how it is and how it always will be.
