Money the perfect deceiver of values.

Every job-
performed with heart, body
and soul
is equal in value-
the midwife cleans shit,
the laborer plows dirt

the laundryman
by his neighbor's grubbiness
lives, and the doctor
by his patients' disease.
Each does something
worth devoting

one's life to make the world
happier and better
for our living. Money
is the perfect
of a man's worth.

if people are different, there will be a judgement...(hierarchy)
if they are the same, there will be competition for places and food

Unfair and unjustifiable, hierarchies are real. Humans seem unable to live without them.
