Money Power

Everyone, is on the run,
Rat-race to earn, to earn and to earn
..........................Is it really worth this strife and pain?

Money can buy a well-groomed house
Even the most elegant spouse
..................................Can it ever make a homely den?

It can fetch you the cushiest bed
Of feathers or roses, be it made
................................A dreamless slumber, can it gain?

Riches it can buy, to embellish your self
With garbs and drapes, it can enrich your shelf
...................................Can it beautify your soul’s pane?

Friends are bought, relations are sold
Dumbed they are, with silver and gold
......................Love and respect, can these be feigned?

Money spans this material sphere
And indeed conquers everything here
....Can it enshrine the inner domain, the spiritual plane?

    Enjoyed reading your words this morning Nanda. If I may be so bold and suggest you read a poem of mine titled "Insidiously Driving Divisions". I believe you may find it enlightening. Steve

    Yes, let's hope not....but the hard reality is indeed this...fortunately or unfortunately money does conquer all the material things...but thankfully it cannot touch the spiritual domain....
