Words and Wealth

Fools not wanting understanding, blast opinions constantly.

Haughty hearts are bound for ru-in, honor takes humility.

When somebody states a case it may seem right to all who hear,

‘til upon examination vaunted claims soon disappear.


Wealth may seem a strong defense to those who have it in their hands.

Through its use some doors may open, giving access to what’s grand.

But that’s just imagination, it can all be blown away.

Wickedness and self-indulgence often have the final say.
