As recited by Lewis H. Carroll, of O'Brien & Carroll.

No money-so the world is now, and cupid's dead,
Love of gold reigns in its stead.
Listen and a lesson I will teach you-
And one that your parson may never preach you:
The rich man good-the poor man better-
And I can prove it to the letter-
For he who has money soon gets a wife;
He who has none can go free all his life.
He who has money can ride coach and horse;
He who has none can walk of course.
He who has money can lose it and feel sad;
He who has none can find it and feel glad.
He who has money dines on the etiquette plan;
He who has none times when he can-
For he who has money may not fancy bite,
And he who has none has a good appetite.
So whether rich or poor don't blame,
They started in the cradle alike,
And shall finish at the grave the same-
For he who has money his life cannot save;
He who has none only comes to the grave.
That six feet of earth no distinction doth bring
To the worm that crawls and is as fat as a king.
And When one hundred years with its troubles have past
The rich man and pour man are level at last.
