The Necessary Evil

Money, they say is the root of all evil

This same man can save a dying man from his death bed

And yet he causes evil, despair and havoc.

Friends betray friends just for him

But he brings joy to the poor and food to the hungry

He is a quest for power between nations

Yet he brings smile on people’s lips

I wouldn’t condemn him readily

I wouldn’t say he is good either

He might be good to you or bad to me

That doesn’t necessarily make him an evil person

Just that some people are and some not

To receive this August visitor into our homes

He makes a visit to our various homes; i tell you

In some he doesn’t stay long

But i wouldn’t condemn him readily

I wouldn’t say he is neither good or bad

I would only say that he is the necessary evil in our world today.

Depends on how you use it.
