Money Green

Money green.
The color of it most effective,
When the having of it...
Produces impaired vision,
Experienced by those getting a bit too close.
And the having of money like that,
Manicured lawns are seen...
Getting the best of devoted treatment.

Money green is noticeable.
Nothing about it is hidden.
Or exaggerated when mentioned.
The ones with money intend to outshine,
With the receiving of attention given.
In a separation clearly seen as done,
Between those who have it!
And the ones who AINT got none!
