What does it profit a man if he gain a good education
To benefit the nation,
In a subject he comes to loathe?
The wild rose
But he dwelt
Who wore fine clothes.
What good does it profit a man if he considers wealth
A supreme good in and of itself?
To help him cope with his stressful day.
He may pay
For a yacht
But he has got
Where his soul
I can not agree
With those who would level down society
And we are not all of the same wood.
Yet to glorify economics at the expense of all else
Leads to an obsession with the self
And rich young things who sit, in groups, alone
Playing with their telephone
