Money Does Sound Pretty Bad

Carmina Burana: On Money

“On earth, the highest king at this time is Money.
Kings marvel at money, and serve as its slaves.
The venal pontifical order has a fondness for money.
In the store-rooms, money holds sway over the abbot.
The black priors venerate money.
Money is the judge at great counsels.
Money calls the needy person from the shitheap into riches.
Money fawns upon us, but threatens us when the flattery is done.
Money lies, but is discovered to be truthful.
Money makes perjurers and those on the verge of death unhappy.
Money is the god of the avaricious, and the hope of the greedy.”
