Capitalism.

Capitalism, the religion of the spiv,
Who does just for money live.
A one for whom a moneyed sight,
Will evoke a shout of "R-I-G-H-T".

For with a working brain so like a pea,
A capitalist can not much see,
And mindless things will him delight,
So he for mindless things will fight.

Money in the bank,
He does highly rank,
Such a thought, does a capitalist enthral,
As it is in life his all.

But a worm gets from life more worth,
And so has in life a higher berth,
Worms capitalists all come before,
As to life they count for more.
