Being Number One – 18th July 2022

The most, the best, the biggest, the loudest
A notion of bigots most often the proudest
A penis envy countered with rockets
Sold to the bidder with deepest pockets
Remember your elders said ‘sharing is caring’
Where has that gone, as people despairing
To beat the Joneses in a pointless race
For a population long fallen from grace
Better yourself, don’t worry who’s on top
It’s a race to the bottom unable to stop
Share the resources with our kindred brothers
We are one in this life with others

For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice – no paper currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service.

John Burroughs
