Money is not gold

Updated on September 29, 2015

O! Foolish man,

What a thing you run after!

Something not greater than,

Just an economic factor.


Its like black magic,

Often obtained by wrong practice.

And what makes it more tragic,

Are the stupid human tactics.


It is just a faker,

A piece of paper!!

Unprotected from a taker,

Polluting the human nature.


The happiness that it reeds,

Is just temporary.

As it leads,

To nothing but worry.


You call yourself the wisest ,

Of all inhabitants of Earth.

Is this the brightest,

Knowledge you can unearth?


O! Foolish man,

Why DON'T you realise?

Money is not worth more than,

Several precious lives.
