Love or Money

Contributed by softerware on Tuesday, 16th May 2017 @ 11:55:36 PM in AEST
Topic: Lifepoems

Its only money; just a tool. Passed around from fool to fool.
Dollar, dime, nickle, penny; best to have, than not have any!
Tucked away in purse or wallet; doesnt matter whatcha call it--

Dirty paper, bacon, chits; wampum, dough, whatever fits!
Call it cabbage, clams or stash;
Chump change, chits,
or good old cash!

or sawbucks, and;
Smackers, greenbacks, or a grand!

Bank or bread, chips or fin;
It pays to have simoleons!

C-notes, moola
, gotta wad?
Those dead presidents our gods!

Loot or scratch, and in between;
Tender, jack or simply green.

The stuff wears out, but not before; we turn around and print some more!
Those who make successful fakes; wind up making license plates!

Your bankroll tells you where you live;
How you tip and what you give;

Who you work for; what you drive;
What you wear, and how you thrive!

Save or spend, bequeath or leave it;
Day will come when you wont need it.

Choose with caution what to reap;
Its love alone we get to keep.

I adore your mind.

Wonderful as the norm. You had to really think to pull up all of those slang terms for money....! A bunch of wisdom in that bottom half for sure.
Loved it!

Researching the jargon for $ is one thing, molding and shaping the terms into a witty well structured poem is a task you pulled off smoothly. This poem is worth many simoleons but the love of it is greater.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
