It's All About Money


Money is a thing
I spend,
I send,
And I make for a living.

Some people agree,
Money is the root of all evil-
A coin by the devil,
But not for me.

Money is important,
I could eat foods I want;
Gives my loved ones smile
Even for a while.

And yes, what a shame!
People put all the blame
On money
That makes them lucky.

Though money can't buy happiness,
I need it in times of sickness.
Let's admit,
We all want to be fit.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Money is not a root of all evil things. It depends on how you utilize it. Money becomes bad when some people use it to kill other people or commit some crimes.

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
