Have you heard tell of Napoleon Hill,
inspired when young by the kind man of steel?
Make your own peace with the great dollar bill.

Societal pressure taught Nap to feel
only contempt for the opulent rich.
Inspired when young by the kind man of steel,

he sensed in our hate a suspicious glitch
that suppressed and possessed, insisting on
only contempt for the opulent rich.

Nap traveled and listened to everyone
who’d thought and grown rich, not always by sweat
that suppressed and possessed, insisting on

the unvarnished truth, their secret of get.
He discovered therein a Silent Law.
Who’d thought and grown rich, not always by sweat

found an infinite well from which to draw.
He discovered therein a Silent Law.
Have you heard tell of Napoleon Hill?
Make your own peace with the great dollar bill.
