this poem

while they're saying and agreeing that "it's okay to be affluent, as long as you're generous," and the possibility that taking more than your share could be justified by God, i have to say i agree with the poem i read that says
This poem understands we cannot put a floor on poverty until we are wiling to put a ceiling on wealth... if they are willing for us to define profits for business we will accept their definitions of freedom for humans
because i think love takes taking our own lives, our own decisions, a little more seriously than some would like to comfort themselves, so that they can believe they're alright and don't feel bad for not giving up what they would do better without anyway.

(poem from nikki giovanni, this poem)
