I don’t have enough money
Humble? Kind? Loyal?
Can’t buy those
Trustworthy? Friendly? Ethical?
No one cares
My value is monetary
To get more, I might have to sacrifice
Be less humble, less kind, less loyal,
Less trustworthy, less friendly, less ethical?
To be richer, I have to be poorer
In that which matters to me
What if society valued its people over…
No, that might be too close to socialism
God help us if we cared about people
Especially if they are the ninety-nine percent
