The Bottom Line


Alice C. Bateman

Can gold bring back

A friend who's died

Can money save a life

Can cash take back

The phone call

In the middle of the night


Can bank accounts

Ease suffering

When they say

Your child is dead

They were drinking

Playing foolish games

Put a bullet through his head


When will we get the picture

When will we comprehend

The god almighty dollar sign

Means nothing in the end
