Corruption Through Greed

Corruption through greed does seem a common sin
In a Human World where one has to lose for another to win
In a fair go for all Planet this never would be
But few things are fair or so 'twould seem to me
Since we all look at life in ways differently
With what I say here many may not agree
Though each to their own as some like to say
You win some and lose some life does seem that way
That money speaks every language cannot be denied
The gap between the haves and the have nots keeps growing ever wide
There is no such a thing as human equality
And there will always be people in dire poverty
Most of the wealth of the Human World is owned by the privileged few
You might say to that tell us something that's new.

Isn't it 6 people in the world own 90% of the wealth. Nice poem.
