Man's Worth

Is a man's existence worth more than a loaf of bread
To save himself from starvation so he steals to be fed
Then off to prison should he then be led
If a man cannot afford food, should he be better off dead.

Is a man's descendants worth more than a gallon of milk
Just to feed his children and to save his ilk
Or does everybody believe that everyone he is trying to bilk
Maybe because his clothes are tattered and he wears not linen or silk.

Is a man’s life worth more than a grain of salt
If he takes it for his food should we riot and assault
Then curse him and scorn him for it his own fault
If he has no means of buying, should death be his default.

Is a man's being worth more than is own income
To the judgment and ridicule of others should he succumb
Isn't a man worth more than the dirt underneath his thumb
As that is what GOD had created man and woman from.
