I was saying
O Great Spirit
I thank you for the daily bread
On my plate and other bounties

The Great Spirit spoke
Son, do not thank me
I gave only the daily bread
The rest is your work

You steal from your ‘brothers’
Your affluence is due to wages
You did not pay
And hid for greed

Son, think
You will feel joyful
And sleep better
If you feel content with daily bread

You will also reap
Many, many other bounties
Peace, justice, deep health,
Much more.
