Social justice

Is there space for a whole world of debtors?
So many fighting to meet obligations
Borrowing to consume
Loaning in hope others will consume

When will the ground be exhausted?
Fighting to produce more and more today
Leaving no thought for tomorrow
We create systems to destroy tomorrow’s wealth

God made a world that renews itself
That which consumes also works to enrich
Yet the whole system is cut short
The life of the soil carted away

Are we to create a desert?
How can we scratch out an existence?
Seems that men forgot life is about sustenance
A wealthy generation with poor children robs the future
