Money can't buy happiness.
Money won't buy self esteem.
You can take money to bed with you,
but it won't satisfy you like a human can.
You can take money with you on a trip,
but it won't share the drive with you.
You can talk to money, but it
won't carry on a conversation with you.
You can spend money and
not be satisfied, and money won't care.
You can ignore money and become a pauper,
money could care less.
You can invest money wisely or poorly,
either way, money won't care.
You have to make right choices with money,
money won't do it for you.
You can invest wisely and make a fortune,
but that money won't give you self esteem.
You can waste your life, talents, goals
and dreams, money could care less.
You can eat paper money, it will give you an
upset stomach or worse yet, make you constipated.
You can swallow quarters, nickels, dimes,
pennies, money will come out the other end
smelling like dung.
You can worship money, place it on a pedestal,
but it will NEVER give the same love back to you.
You can place money above love, above friendships,
money won't care.
Prostituting oneself for money, a sad commentary
on one's life, a sad legacy to leave for one's children.
You can burn money, money won't feel a thing.
You can burn a friendship, and lose your soul.
