"It should be plain for all to see,
wealth is the mother of all greed.
Han Shan says the rich are never satisfied.
No matter how much they have it's never enough.
Han Shan says they're stingy too. Even when they've got
a granary full of stale rice, they won't loan out a peck.
It's still that way. The Emperor's richer than an emperor,
yet all he wants to do is take money from the poor and give
it to himself and his rich friends. The more these people
have the more they want. They'll never have enough."
Can they (can we) even really see three pelicans? Isn't that often enough?
