AN EQUALIZER, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: It is as true as caesar's name was kaiser
Last Line: We now and then should take an equalizer
Subject(s): Economics; Wealth; Riches; Fortunes

It is as true as Caesar's name was Kaiser
That no economist was ever wiser
(Though prodigal himself and a despiser
Of capital, and calling thirst a miser),
And when we get too far apart in wealth,
Twas his idea that for the public health,
So that the poor won't have to steal by stealth,
We now and then should take an equalizer.
