Greatly seen are the material things

Expunged are the essential values that survived

Long ago

Slain by killer eyes who justify worth

By the name brand

And not the power in a firm shaken hand

Not by the sweat on the brow of a hard working man

Impressed by the come up and not the climb up

Settling instead of striving for more

Than the towel that replaces a throw rug on the floor
