Money, Money, Money

entry picture

I bet all of you, wish you could be me

Perched high and mighty above the sea

I look down upon those who have not

From my monogrammed pool…. aboard my giga yacht

 

I bet all of you, wish you could be me

I can have anything I desire you see

Anything money can buy I can choose

I am winning at life, then again.... I can afford to lose

 

My fortune made from drilling soil

I made my millions from trading oil

I spend my money on important things

Jets, cars, yachts, helicopters.... diamond studded bling

 

I surround myself with the best in life

Model girlfriends, an understanding wife

I gift tokens of love, of priceless treasure

Small gestures like these.... buys me endless pleasure

 

I bet all of you, wish you could be me

I have everything I could ever need you see

Paparazzi pay good money for a photo or two

A photograph with me..... could be the making of you

 

I bet all of you, wish you could be me

I mix in the right circles, among royalty

I party with the rich and those who found fame

Don't ask me who..... I can't remember their name

 

When the party is over and I am all alone

Bottle of finest in hand, slumped on my throne

I contemplate what I can not buy with all my wealth

Peace, love, happiness, respect, trust, wisdom and health

Thanks Nicola.
Thanks Brian, someone said the yacht in moored in the bay belonged to a wealthy sheikh. Now I am wondering how many women own giga yachts, I always think of them as boys toys😁

A fab poem and so true money doesn't buy happiness, but it helps to pay the bills x

Interesting that you've written it from a man's perspective Julie...
