In every difficult situation is potential value. Believe this, then begin looking for it.Norman Vincent Peale
MONEY MAKES MANKIND go round. That's what all the sages say.
So in an alternate world that does not revolve around money,
What are the three things I, Lazarus Shatipamba would do for no pay?
Believe it or not,
I, Lazarus Shatipamba would be president
For no pay whatsoever.
I would live entirely off the many benefits
Afforded to presidents.
LIKE having my :
- safety secured
- travel taken care of
- accommodation acquired
- staff sorted.
As I feel like there's no point
To receiving a salary, so I'd rather have it remain in the budget.
To help in buying some tissues
For those crying from the issues
Plaguing my nation today.
I know they will not bring about jubilation,
But at least they can soothe the masses while i work on a solution.
To better decrease problems like pollution.
Plus; i would not need the money anyways, as my First Lady
Surely earns enough for the both of us.
She can be the breadwinner in the family.
I am not too greatly shamed by that. In fact, it does not shame me at all.
In a world were money does not make the world go round,
I would make sure my knowledge goes around--
By choosing to teach for free.
To be like a sculptor, shaping the minds of future generations
Worthy of being looked at.
Is for that which brings me glee.
It does not matter. Whether money makes the world go round,
As it was always scripted in the stars. That i am bound
To write poetry.
