The Concept of Money - October 05, 2009
Jim Magee - Poet of the "Common" Man
Dedicated to all my "common" brothers & sisters
The concept of money has been on my mind - quite a lot these past days
That printed paper, backed up by rocks can make the whole world so totally crazed
A devious scheme by a master-mind, to keep the majority down
And the plan is working if everyone's face is constantly wearing a frown
No-one should ever have to endure - homelessness, suffering or hunger
And just the mere thought of a night without heat should be helping your heart to grow stronger
Help everyone with all that you can - that should be your main objective
And do it with love and with patience and caring - it's a gift, it is not a directive
When we think about all the resources we have - there's no need to leave anyone wanting
When you see all the news-clips of the homeless and ill - the pictures are really quite haunting
If everyone everywhere, would gather together and all be the "Family of Man"
The combined worlds consciousness would create a new beginning
And it's not a case of "COULD", but rather "CAN"!!!
