If each person produces
a little more than they receive,
then the increase he induces,
our abundance may retrieve.
But if each citizen collects
more than he does contribute,
our collective task reflects
a deficiency to distribute.
So how can each one be induced
in the system and in the fray
to make more of what’s produced
than what he has consumed today?
But does it even make sense
to think of productivity this way,
when dollars turn to cents
and abundance slips away?
I mean the world is really not
so logical as we would wish;
some neglect to give from what they’ve got
when we pass around the dish.
Some will always get more than they give
while others give more than they get.
We see its just the way folks live.
So get used to it; don’t fret.
If you’re disturbed ’cause of inequality,
and you find this world’s so unfair,
just make the most of your potentiality,
and try to do your fair share.
