Well, of course, no money in it!

What makes the world go round?

Cannot do without it, to love it is sin!

A way to treat it I have found—



A necessary commodity

Purchasing things that you need.

But aside from that do not hoard it, right?

Do not let it go to seed!



Old farming expression, go to seed

As the weeds that spread when left.

Pull that weed, put it in the sack,

Bonfire tonight good effect!



The love of money is that seed,

Weed, root of all sin!

Contained within that love is the lust

To hold, embrace within!



“Money, I love it!”  My cousin once said.

I inadvertently cringed!

Learned later he owned half a township,

Dead now, trust he is not singed!



“Love of money the root of all evil.”

Money, I love it!  Do tell?

Truly do not know what happened later,

Except he died, I hope not in hell!



Greed, the desire to possess

To have, possess, to control.

“Hold them, fold them…”  Then in the end

Dead!  Never dying soul.



What then?  With the rich?

Nothing left to proclaim, had his way.

“I did it my way, truly I did…”

What now is left to say?



Cannot take it with you.

Rich man, from hell cried to Lazarus,

“Just the tip of your finger

A drop of water…”
