Money stacks tower,
casting shadows that lengthen–
extend my power.

Will you be happy,
to sleep  in bed of millions,
locked up, all alone?

  1. Wonderful collaboration! Many are content to sleep alone with their money but as the saying goes ” You can’t take it with you when you go.”

  2. I used to think money is an evil thing but I heard from a speech once (I forgot who it was :() that it is actually our choices that makes money a thing of evil. If we let either having money (or the lack of it) change our lives or who we really are. Reflective poem, Rosema. 🙂
