Dollar Up

See that rich man begging on the telly He’s made your financial future toast, now he also wants your cash reserve preserve jelly Do you believe the rich man, who’s pleading real con-science nice, flashing teeth pearly white as rice? If you do, then reach down in your pockets and dollar up Do it! Reach deep down and don’t think twice Pay his penthouse suite price Help that rich man get on his bankrupt feet again Donate to his favorite charitable cause: Me-Me and Me Too Them are three fine looking triplets ... you know you gotta help buy them trust fund babies some shoes Now that rich man prefer the dollars, but he’ll accept coins too ... them that got good silver jingle And any plastic alms given, will be a credit to your people Get a Trump card: Joker gift scrutiny free But, it won’t be accredited to your tax relief Good grief! Somebody help that rich man, strutting down the street, hailing his chauffeured limo Caddy Who’s gon help pay his taxi fare? That man needs more than just spit bubbles in the air Help that rich man, whose investors are down on his speculating luck He needs you to reach deep down into your purse pain, and dollar up He says, go tell your husband or boyfriend, to reach deep, deep down into their bleeding green leather grain, and dollar up Give it all up ... until the rich man says he’s had enough Plenty to build a tower tall, high wall stack of bucks But, do a greedy dog ever get enough?

WoW! Freddie, I really enjoy your hard hitting, realistic poems. Your pen is not afraid to write about issues that others just think about. Bravo and bravo again. I could read you any day of the week. Great title and content. I knew who you were referring to ( or a type of) right from the start. This joker will chew up and spit you out. Excellent piece of poetry my friend:-) Alexis
