The Betrayer of Beneficence

Having read through the entire Digest of the Civil Law
All things firmly understood
He established the view
That money was that which the State declared to be so

Consequently, in all his dealings the notion was reinforced
And he was enable to accumulate more than necessary to maintain even the highest levels of comfort
Through acts which were perfectly legal
Although elevated ethics had clearly been set aside

Also he thought
That he was free to exploit
Since conduct was guided by constitutional capitalistic codes
And the core focus of his activities was to find loopholes
Within the crevices of what was already written in stone
