People are starving.
The Rich gobble taxes,
That’s why the people are starving.
The rich oppress them,
that’s why the people rebel.
People hold life too cheap.
The rich make it too costly,
that is why the people hold it cheap.
But those who don’t live for the sake of living
are worth more than the wealth seekers.
