Luke 8:18

I was trying to work this out:
those with nothing will lose even that.

And the other side: that more
will be given those who have much.

Someone pulled me aside
to whisper, "Use it or lose it, right?"

And their motto: "Those who have, win;
those who don't, won't."

There are people who will tell you
Jesus was the first venture capitalist.

That he desires for us what others sell:
limos, jets, homes and handbags.

But only if you believe irony is dead.
And forget he had no place to lay his head.
