The world is full of evils, and the one that galls me most
is seeing wealth I’ve worked for dissipated to a host
of strangers who will get their joy from what they didn’t earn
and though I live and love, I’ll get no profit or return.
If I cannot enjoy my time before I taste the grave,
then never being born would be the better alternate.
In dark we start, in darkness end. Why should we strive for light?
Injustice stalks us all the way, there’s naught can make it right.
