to be rich

 some would say the farmer was poor 

 for he had no cow 

 but only chickens, a goat 

 dogs and cats 

 some think themselves poor 

 because their house has 

 only 1 bathroom

 lacks Kohler fixtures 

 now to be rich 

 the sailor needs tide and wind 

 the farmer needs sunshine and gentle rain 

 the lover 

 a kiss 

 the priest a vocation 

 the enthusiast an avocation 

 the musician 

 a voice 

 all to be shared
