Better Off

The world would be better off

if people tried to be better.

And people would become better

if they stopped trying to be better off.


For when everybody tries to become better off, nobody is better off.

But when everybody tries to become better, everybody is better off.


Everybody would be rich

if nobody tried to become richer.

And nobody would be poor

if everybody tried to be poorest.


And everybody would be what we ought to be

if everybody tried to be what we want the other one to be!
