A Topsy-Turvy World! - A Limerick

In love, people's worth should be prized,
Treasures to cherish, undisguised.
But when objects take hold,
And people's worth is sold,
Chaos prevails, truth unrecognised.


Based on Dalai Lama's words:
"Menschen wurden erschaffen, um geliebt zu werden!
Dinge wurden geschaffen, um benutzt zu werden!
Der Grund, warum sich die Welt im Chaos befindet, ist,
weil Dinge geliebt und Menschen benutzt werden."
