Profit

When profit guides the needs of man,
The wise withdraw to where they can,
Look closely at just what they need,
Although it's true you must succeed,
In feeding family and provide,
The things that keep us all alive.

When things look bleak and fall apart,
Look deep for what is in your heart.
Don't let the bastards grind you down,
Or even let them see you frown.
Just bare your soul for all to see,
A winner you will always be.

But I don't care the deed is done,
And I'll continue having fun.
For when you've lived as long as me,
Important things have changed you see.
They're not the things that you can buy,
But those you carry when you die.
