Wealth, Love & Deceit! ! ! - Poem by Tom Zart

A nation's wealth is not wheat, oil or gold
But those who live there both young and old.
Their wealth is a product of man's daily toil
Be they swing wars saber or plow God's soil.

In life, we fail despite our wealth
Though the substance of all evil is man.
It's not money that causes all that's wrong
But the ignorance of who's in command.

Some gain wisdom by their own suffering
While others find they suffer from conceit.
Far greater is wealth by doing what is right
Than any revenues obtained by deceit.
