For the Love of Money


I love money

but our relationship is one-sided.

I love her so much

that I put her over my family, friends and even God.


I give her my time and health,

and my body can definitely prove my loyalty

with my receding hairline and grey beard.


Yet after all that,

she ignores me.

When we first met at 16

I thought if I made enough

I would be happy

and I was,

but that didn’t last.

I chased and chased,

but the game isn’t the same anymore.

Besides I think she’s cheating on me

with someone younger

probably a young guy with hopes and dreams

someone who use to be like me.
