Riddle

people-1316406_960_720

If you met with a sphynx
very, very weird
with a so weird, riddle,
would you take some trouble
and make a silly attempt?

I met such a sphynx
very, very weird
with a very weird riddle,
“Is it by birth or by deed
that one becomes rich or poor?”

A wise man has said,
“one doesn’t become
an outcast or a highcaste
merely by his birth,
but by his deeds”.

Yet, the world has divided
into polar opposites:
the rich vs the poor,
and us versus them.
Is it their birth or deeds
that make them so different?

This is the weird riddle
ze needs our help to resolve.
