Some think money
is the answer to all the world’s woes –
health, hunger, homelessness,
education, environmental issues;
that cash will find the cures for cancer,
autism and diseases of the heart –
fear, loneliness, depression and (the list goes on) –
everything that ails us.
All of these just need enough currency
tossed at them to be fully fixed.
But (you & I) we know it ain’t so.
It ain’t the billionaires
who’ll be making these repairs;
it’s the Poets, the Singers and Songwriters,
and Everyone who understands that
(no matter what the question is)
there’s really only one answer,
and it ain’t money.
