So Little About Life

It is a fact of life and fact does not lie
That the longer you live the sooner you will die
Yet the longer i live the wonder in me grow
Of so little about life that i seem to know
Some say what we receive from life is only our due
On some but not in all cases this well may be true
But only a saint would embrace poverty
At least anyway that's how it seems to me
For in life money is most important why otherwise pretend
And those with plenty of it never short of a friend
Not many in the World of today without money survives
Though it never will buy the Reaper of lives
The more i learn of life the more i realize
That about it so little i know this is not a surprise.
