Very Clear

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Money can't buy happiness?
I'll be damn...
It's in the wrong hands!
You give yours to me.
Come along on a journey
And you will definitely see...
How money can be used,
To destroy myths and trite expressions
Abused.
Give your money to me...
And I will teach you a few lessons,
That will destroy pockets of hypocrisy!
Money can't buy happiness,
For those trying to hoard it
To dress up and luster their emptiness.
Those bored to tears with inner conflicts.
With 'things' not bringing them reasons to cheer!
Get me near some money...
And I will show you the meaning of happiness,
That is very clear!
Apparently those who have it...
Find it useless to absorb and dry,
Their selfishness hidden that brings them to tears!
A greediness maintained they've denied,
Trying to buy attention and hiding this for years!
