Thoughts on Wealth

As I fret o’er finances
I sometimes daydream ‘bout the chances
Credit companies would let me be
If only I win the lottery

No more cares about a bill
No more worries ‘bout gettin’ ill
House and boat in the country
If only I win the lottery

Daughter on dope in a haze
Wife is lonely just a faze
Son would end up in juvie
If I would win the lottery

I have my daughter and my son
I have my wife I have my fun 
I have a home and poetry
I have enough ‘til eternity

I will keep on paying bills
Thoughts of wealth just give me chills
I know I’m blessed I know I’m free
And I sure don’t need that lottery

    Welcome to PoetrySoup Jeff. I know this is a late welcome but, I have had some very pressing matters going on. I hope to be back and at full speed in the next week or so. Until then please keep writing and sharing your poetry. Love, Carol

    This brings to mind the song from "Fiddler on the Roof" titled "If I Were a Rich Man". You have decent descriptiveness and rhyming in this presentation.
