What Is Wished

A standard of life,
And the wish to keep this protected...
Has been the reason greed unchecked,
Created mounting depths...
Of unpaid debts.

And this standard of life,
Has...
Produced effective disrespect.
To leave many disbelieving...
Their agonies from it is what they get.

'I don't understand it.'

What is it you wished and did not get?

'People crazed and lazy,
Are all around me to see.'

A standard of life,
And the wish to keep this protected...
Has been the reason greed unchecked,
Created mounting depths...
Of unpaid debts.

'I don't understand it.
Where did all of this start?
Everywhere a lack of discipline creates,
Broken hearts.'

What is it you wished for and did not get?

'A standard of life.'

But if it wasn't what you wished...
Why has it been the 'thing' accepted?

'I don't understand it.
Where did all of this start?
Everywhere a lack of discipline creates,
Broken hearts.'

What is it you wished for and did not get?

'A standard of life.'

A standard of life,
And the wish to keep this protected...
Has been the reason greed unchecked,
Created mounting depths...
Of unpaid debts.

And this standard of life,
Has...
Produced effective disrespect.
To leave many disbelieving...
Their agonies from it is what they get.
