An Ode to Money
If money makes the world go round,
then it is the reason I'm dizzy,
I'm overworked and spent afore earnt,
frantically spending a-tizzy.
And if money does not grow on trees,
then no wonder it's a labor;
working a lifetime to earn for me,
with hardly a cent for my neighbor.
And if money can't buy happiness,
of course I am sad about this.
Gave time to earn it, all too quickly burnt it,
strangling my eternal bliss.
So I live in and of this world
connect to all its facets.
I must say I'm quite glad for grace
'cause I've slipped and fallen on my assets.
