“IN THE WORLD OF MONEY.” a poem, for 19 September 2019 (Thursday)

In this world, in this world, in this world, in this world,

MONEY’S SECURITY (?) but MONEY’S N O T “SECURE;”

Still, you need some of it (?) For it’s needed (?) , and, yes, for sure:

YOU CAN SHIELD YOURSELF FROM IT, NEVER TALK ABOUT IT, TRY TO GET RID OF IT, BUT I THINK YOU HAVE TO PLAY WITH IT, TO BECOME SOMETHING OF AN EXPERT, LEST YOU FEEL FEAR WHEN YOU GOT IT.

I’ve known a man for many years; his tendency, I think,

Is to DISPOSE QUICKLY OF HIS MONEY, so his life it will not stink,

Of filthy, caustic lucre, burning big holes through his pants;

Now, THAT, of course, IS ONE KIND OF STRATEGY, but isn’tIt sortOf like a dance?

In THE DANCE, the girl approaches you and gets you on The Floor;

WhatIfYouJustDance for 20 seconds, and nothing more?

20 seconds is probably not long enough, to become an expert,

But at least you’ve tasted SOME romance, and, hopefully, you’re not badly hurt.

FOR ROMANCE, JUST LIKE MONEY, IS A DOUBLE EDGED SWORD;

It can be dangerous, but also WONDERFUL. With both, of course, you might get bored.

So, here’s a question: Is it BAD? toQuicklyDump the wads of cash you HAD?

Or put them immediately in the bank, so bankStatements canLook “rad?”*

The way I see it: BE EASY with this stuff called CASH,

Don’t hold it TOO tightly OR TOO loosely BE HAPPY WITH YOUR STASH?

Some say that IT will kill you, and some say it is GOD;

Well, WHATEVER. Just try not to worryTooMuch with your blessed “wad.”

Moral: For worry itself is hurtful; JUST IMAGINE IT’S NOT THERE,

If someone comes and takes it, JUST REMEMBER, THERE’S ALWAYS AIR,

So breathe deeply; YES, INHALE. SMELLaLOT YOUR MONEY,

The greatest trait that cash might have IsIts”AuthorizedSmell,” My Honey;

MONEY’S DISTINCTIVE, PUNGENT AROMA, like your lady, is REALLY all right,

So, REMEMBER: “Let money, like luck, BE A (beautiful) LADY TO-NIGHT.”
