A debt was what was owed the gods;
Then money brought us great upheaval
With banks and usurers and odds.
As well, with money’s first invention,
It brought us human hypertension
As debt became the money owed
Because it’s prompted by a goad.
If debt grew from our first morality
In honor to the gods on high
For giving us pie in the sky,
How is it now the commonality
(On empty stomachs!) drudge and sweat
To be led deeper into debt?
