Gold Digger Need Not Apply


Your eyes hunger for money,
Hoping some would magically appear.
Your words flow like honey,
Trickling sweetly down my ear.
Your tongue is wicked and funny,
But busy lapping up its own spiel.
Your lips are full of promises,
None of which are remotely real.
Your hands and fingers are insatiable,
Whenever something valuable is near.
Your body is your temple,
The only thing you worship and revere.
I would call you a gold digger,
But you’re still choosing your career.

    elena, somehow [before i read your invitation to read t] i thought i had already read this one. i guess not, since i left no comment. a nicely flowing and rhyming piece. thanks. but it seems that he may also worship and revere money. maybe not the same as his body. i wonder what profession he will settle on. hmmm?
    there are a lot of lines i enjoyed but i guess i liked these the best:

    Your words flow like honey,
    Trickling sweetly down my ear.
