Wealth and Poverty

lyrics

Allow me to introduce you to some friends of mine
They have both kept me company at some point in time
One takes you captive, her comforts attractive
While the beggars sit and wait at her door
And with her you will always want more
Wealth, why do you exist
and why are you so hard to resist?
We purchase we pay, we hope it gets better
but hope is sold for the day
Wealth and Poverty stay

And then there's Poverty she's
hard to shake
Cause till death do us part is the same as forever
She'll rob you dry, o you should see her cry
when you find out you don't have anymore.
She replies, "that is why you are poor."
Poverty should you exist?
"Yes of course," the rich men insist
They'll give you a dollar and hope it gets better
but hope is sold for the day
Wealth and Poverty stay

Why does it have to be so separate and clean?
Abundance, destitution no in between
And why do we desperately cling to our extremes?

Mercy, do you exist?
"Yes of course," the good men insist
But mercy is silent 'cause no one will let her
Give us hope for the dayThe love that I taste
Wealth and Poverty stay
