WHY THE POOR ARE POOR

Image Credit: Quickmeme


Since last one week,
How many times have you paid for one or another?
Each pay was a leak
Through your pocket and into another

Uneasy lies
The head that wears the crown 
And unease creates
The circle that rules the town

Nothing good 
Comes easy;
It's usually through a hand,
dingy and greasy.

Money comes in from
Earning and saving
And goes out
Through buying, craving

It's hard to earn and save
And easy to buy and crave
It's why the hard get rich,
A status the soft-poor will never reach
Until they occupy a hard niche

Look for something
For which the ease-seeking poor itch
But cannot have in their easy ditch
Then, take the hard road of providing
The value they want but can't have dropping
And into your pocket, theirs would come leaking
And we say, "you're more earning;
"You're richer", your praises ringing

You've got to take off 
The ease-seeking mind
And become
A value-seeking kind
And you will, one-eyed,
Rule in the land of the blind
Blind from being soft
- the status the poor has signed

Ensure you earn and save

More than you buy and crave
And you will join the enclave
of the rich, powerful and brave

But don't forget

It comes from your sweat,
Doing what's a threat
Taking on the threat
Creates the asset
Or else you'd regret
And die in debt

Here is a story

About two boys
Whose names were
Voice and Noise
(coming soon).
