Money

When did a man's value
Become the things he owned
Surely he's worth more than that?

How long have we wasted, how many lives
In obtaining petty trinkets
When they could have done more?

When did it become so normal
To hoard things we don't need
Surely others could benefit more?

When did we decide
That pooling resources together
For the common good was a "taxing" thing, something to avoid?

When did mere bits of paper
Matter so much you killed your brother
Surely your greed didn't turn you so evil?

And when did we become slaves to riches
Doing what we hate, just for some extra money
Surely our time- our lives- are worth more?

Surely, folks?
