I Was Once A Millionaire

I Was Once A Millionaire

I was once a millionaire
All and all,
But I was swindled by a friend I tried to help
Not so very long ago.
Isn't that the way it always is?
This tale has been told before, 
I tried to help him
How naive of me.
I should of known
And now I do not have any money for hamburger meat
Oh yes, I was a big man about town,
Fancy gallas and fancy cars,
But now im but a pauper
Most can see,
But no one really recognizes me.
So keep that good heart on your sleeve.
This world is filled with shysters and thieves.
My darling wife she stuck with me, most of them 
would of taken their leave. 
But not her, she abided by the words,
better or for worse,
Little did she know she would end up with a curse
We are fine now we collect social security,
but it won't be long before the government takes that too
And I will be left with no dough
and crying oh woe.

A poem I know is written from bitter experience Marc, There are some evil scammers out there who are so willing to con us out of our hard earned cash - hubby has just had to help someone who got scammed by a caller from 'microsoft' thankfully they didn't get his bank details just blocked him from using his pc:-(

I was a trader in the open market  I had close to 100000 grand in my hands and all I was looking for was  Like 500 a day not to greedy and I was doing it, even though im no genius,  I had like 3 jobs A friend who dazzled me because he knew a bit of math traded one day for me,  You are suppose to put what is called a stop in case it drops fast he got us into some Mineral Co that I knew nothing about my money went down the toilet one day I was trading and  i made 4000 in 5 minutes can you believe that, I was so on my way,  But destiny had other plans its ok i was on drugs and im better now and away from LA bye, thanks for letting me share, perhaps the fact that he turned into a woman should of set off alarms, and a new yorker to boot, thnak for letting me share i need it today, all water under the bridge
