The Simple Joys of Capitalism                             

            It is gratifying
            To awaken every day and,
            With a few adjustments for
            The stock exchange and interest rates,
            Determine with a simple calculation
            Someone’s total monetary worth
            An even greater joy, however,
            Is to recognise that measurements of
            Human value are the same as

            Which neatly manages to factor
            Conscience out of the equation
