The Highest Priority

Food, shelter, and medical care;
Are humanity’s basic needs.
Surely upon this point;
Most everyone is agreed.

The “right” to exploit and profit;
(A concept foreign to early “Man”);
Has seemingly become;
The fundamental “right” of our land.

Nature clearly reveals;
What logic should dictate.
The welfare of each person;
Top priority a society should make.

(Note:  With reference to “Man” as applied in Line 6.  My apologies in advance.  I attempt to shun the use of the word “Man” as an application to humanity as a whole as I feel it is a sexist reference.  I confess to succumbing to my poetic desire on this particular occasion.  Davey)
