Let every worker earn a living wage,
And every family have enough to eat.
Better bellies full of bread than rage.
One finds no better peacemaker than wheat.
Really? Can we get around inflation?
Demand increases; what about supply?
Affluence reduces population.
Yet some prefer to see poor people die.
