The Economy

Such a complicated system
anyone who wants something can buy it
from someone who wants to sell it
and money has universal value
so someone in faraway China or India
made the shirt I am wearing
someone else put it on a ship
powered by petroleum from faraway Arabia or Texas
and she sailed to a port
and it was divided and transshipped
and one day I got the shirt
and everyone got some money
and was fed for a day
and this complicated system
keeps working
day after day
for centuries
