If I were a rich man???? Please No!!

Updated on May 28, 2013

I am so poor i cannot pay attention

Can you imagine how I would write if I were rich man?

I am me, I love those who are like me. I am not good or bad, I am just me. Perhaps this week I drive a Bently perhaps next I drive a grocery cart.

But I am just me. I love and so I live, I am so happy. I would die happy today. And so I give a poem.

Oh I worry so

You I do not know in any way

So for your wellness i do pray

Let them take me far away

for here i serve but another day

let me be the weed you pull

let my entire being make you full

I am but a worn out flower

you are but the 13th hour

leave me be to know love lost

let me be the scooner tossed

I am not the tempest that you seek

let me die among the weak

I will crush all of your foe

Just let me die so I do not know

Let me bow down a soul to keep

let me die as you sleep

goodness is a welcome mat

Lord knows I am not of that.

Good bye me friends, let me sleep

your time and trouble no more to keep

      Well what's that old saying Sir Eric - be careful for what you wish for and money doesen't necessarily buy happiness but I am poor now and in danger of losing my cottage within two months and it's the lowest time in my life and quite frankly, lol, I would love to be a miserable son of a bitch with money for a change.

      Well I guess I shouldn't complain - I got my health back relatively speaking and I am a rich man for knowing someone like you but heck I still want to see how the other half lives - and spend it too, lol.

      epigramman, please do not tell anyone. I try to keep it a secret. I sneak around in the darkest corners of society. I am supposed to be a loving Christian, but I have hate issues. I hate, banks, mortgage companies and land lords. Stopping any kind of process that takes someone's living space is my favorite hobby, right after chasing my wife around with cooking tongs and rose peddle jam.

      Now just assuming you have issues in this regard. You would be a complete jackass and idiot and moronski and a low yellow belly snake not to let me chew on some folks just for shiggles and chits. I worked my butt off just to get a doctorate so I could have fun like that.

      Again I insist you tell no one of this private life of mine.

      You are my hero Sir Eric and a role model and definitely a lot of fun especially with those cooking thongs ....

      Lurana, one time my grandpa told me to pick all the apples off the ground. Then he made me use my cool Boy Scout knife to clean and core. That apple pie was better than any picked straight from the tree. I am the richest man I know.

      I clicked the "funny" button, because it was very funny. Beautiful things often are.

      Eric, all this time I've been thinking that you are a rich man! You wouldn't write any differently. You'd be still honest, practical and funny as you are here!
