Money has functions four Exchange, value, later costs and store It adds to power in life For more wealth, luxury car and wife Gold and perfume are assured Still more is aimed with lotto tickets Compounded interest secured With debit and credit cards in pockets Most gifts are given in cash Friends multiply as riches are abounding And shopping is never a rash But some involve in wicked dealings No thinking, no self-esteem Cluttered mind, some terrible vices They can’t do right it seems Their living turns into a roll of dice Some forget past struggles And venture in race for more money While family life bungles Till bad eyesight and bones are creaky What sin they’ve been through Why consider “others better than me” They must cease to be a fool One should be fair with money and family

A bad case of greed is truly a corrupting condition that is so sad to watch. Your rhyme and flow held me all the way through, and the lesson is clearly and poetically given ... CayCay
