Understanding between humans
Knowing an objects or services value
allows for exchanges where society may benefit.
Yet exploitation abounds
and people are fooled into thinking
that their contributions are not as valuable.
So then unbalanced situations occur
as one gathers more than they may ever need
and hoard it from all the rest of society.
For those on the bottom
it is hard to get out from underneath
that fat blocking hand of dehumanizing wealth.
Yet, even though
the ones wearing the smirks
know that they can only keep their money
if they continue to use the labour of those beneath them.
There is the conundrum
that all society faces
and it is telling when you must face others
as to why you treat those you do
the way you do.
Poverty is not a sin
but a situation where
those in it work harder than anyone else
just to stay alive.
