Billionaire Philosophy

I bargained with Life for a penny,


And Life would pay no more,


However I begged at evening


When I counted my scanty store;


For Life is a just employer,


He gives you what you ask,


But once you have set the wages,


Why, you must bear the task.



I worked for a menial's hire,


Only to learn, dismayed,


That any wage I had asked of Life,


Life would have paid...
