Isn't Less Sometimes MORE ... ?

Those Words Sound GOOD If You're NOT POOR ... !!!
But Money DOESN'T Give You ... " LIFE " ...
And Life Is NOT Defined By PRICE ... !!!

But Is That ... RIGHT ... ?!?

Some Would Say It Makes Them SMILE ... !!!
Now This DEFINES Those In ... " DENIAL " ... !!!

It's Not My Way To Make You Pay ...
For Things That People Like To Say ...

But Writing Things ...
Helps EASE The Rage I Feel Today ... !!!
Because of GREED That Leads To PAIN ... !!!!!

That's Why I'm Asking What's The Score ... ?
.... Isn't Less Sometimes MORE .... ?

Cos' GREED Is Something I DEPLORE ... !!!!!

Money Fuels A LOT of Wars ...
Where People DIE So How's That RIGHT ... ?!?

More DEATH Than Life Sees People CRY ... !!!!!!!!!

Tears And Eyes Don't Be Surprised ...
If Words I Speak ... DARKEN Sunlight ... !!!

In Todays' Times While Writing Rhymes ...
I Use My Mind To Find SUNSHINE ... !!!

I Have Less Cash Than EVER BEFORE ... !!!!!
And Face A Life of Being ... " POOR " ...

That's NOT FOR SURE ... !!!
But Money's Made PAIN In Me ... " SOAR " ... !!!

ARGUMENTS To Get Some CASH ...
Are DANGEROUS And Make Some CLASH ... !!!!!!!

I'd Rather Have LESS Than MORE of That ... !!!!!

Mums And Dads Now FIGHT For Cash ... ?
Ignoring Daughters And Their Lads ... !?!

These Are Things NOT GOOD But BAD ... !!!!!

EVEN Fathers And Their SONS ... !!!!!
Will Go To Court Now THAT'S NOT FUN ... !!!!!

Over MONEY Come On Now ..... !!!
That's Just As BAD As ... Gun-Type Sounds ... !!!

LESS Violence Is BETTER THAN MORE ... !!!!!

Like LESS DEFIANCE Breeds LESS War ... !!!!!

MORE Aggression FEEDS Depression ... !!!
These Are Things I'd Like To ... LESSEN ... !!!

Sometimes LESS TALK And MORE ACTION ...
Can Bring You YES ... " Satisfaction " .... !!!!!

And That's A FACT DON'T DISMISS That ... !!!!!

But It's GOOD To Talk When Building Forts ... !!!!!

BUT NOT A Fortress Just For ... " YOU " ... !!!

REMEMBER ... OTHER People FOOL ... !!!!!
May Take Because They Want That TOO ... !!!!!

That's What MORE Can Sometimes DO ...
Make People ... JEALOUS of You ... !!!!!
And Make Them PULL The DARKEST Moves ... !!!!!

If You Haven't Got A Thing What's There To Take ... ???
I Guess This View Is Not The Way ...

But Look Around You ... " NOWADAYS " ... !!!

Can You Say I'm Wrong At The End of The Day ... ?!?

SOME Will KILL YOU For Your CHAIN ... !?!
I'm Thinking Some Folk Are INSANE ... !!!!!

Check NEW ORLEANS When Facing DEATH ... !!!
Some Were Stealing ... " TV Screens " ... !!!!! ? !!!!!!

Instead of HELPING Those Who SCREAMED ... ?!?
Come On Now Folks See What I Mean ... !?!
Money Breeds RUTHLESS Street Teams ... !!!

Who Then Do Things That Are OBSCENE ... !!!!!

Happiness Means MORE To Me ...
Than ANY SUM of Cash Money ... !!!!!!

Times Right Now Have Made Me SEE ... !!!
Money CAN'T ... Fulfil My Dreams ... !!!

LESS Murder Gives Us MORE LIFE ..... !!!!
And Helps To KEEP Our Race ... " ALIVE " ... !!!!!

ALL Colour Types From Black To White ...
LESS Division Helps MORE ... " UNITE " ... !!!!!

And THAT For Sure Is Better Than WAR ... !!!
And NOW Has Made My Mind EXPLORE .........................................

This ... Simple Question ....

" Isn't Less Sometimes MORE ... ? "
