Sufficiency of living

I kept asking
I was wondering
Who should decide
Sufficiency of living.
 
Yes! Rice in the field,
Labour by poor unfortunate souls
For the rich who grab the deals
All their wealth, increasingly hold.
 
No more field, no more pond, 
No land left to own
Inheritance has gone
To pay off debts and loans
 
Behind  the smile
They are crying,
Behind the rich golden land
They are slowly dying.
