Upton Sinclair, ed. (1878–1968).
The Cry for Justice: An Anthology of the Literature of Social Protest.  1915.
 
Concerning Wealth. I.

By Hesiod

(Greek poet, fl. 8th cent.? B.C.)
 
WHO, or by open force, or secret stealth,
Or perjured wiles, amasses wealth,
(Such many are, whom thirst of gain betrays)
The gods, all seeing, shall o’ercloud his days;
His wife, his children, and his friends shall die,        5
And, like a dream, his ill-got riches fly.
