All profits disappear: the gain

Of ease, the hoarded, secret sum;

And now grim digits of old pain

Return to litter up our home.We hunt the cause of ruin, add,

Subtract, and put ourselves in pawn;

For all our scratching on the pad,

We cannot trace the error down.What we are seeking is a fare

One way, a chance to be secure:

The lack that keeps us what we are,

The penny that usurps the poor.

.: Reckoning :.

I think the speaker is looking back on his past mistakes or secrets and regreting them. They are searching for a solution to these problems. They want to be secure. Being secure means equality for everybody. "We hunt the cause of ruin." To me, this means they search for what they did wrong. "All profits disappear:" or so called profits disappear. Now we gain what was hoarded and kept secret from us. We now(the poor in an economically or spiratually sense, get what we deserve.
