Money Songs

Rich indulgences entertain rich feelings

I don't want to spend without sentimental meaning


But I require food, and clothes upon my body

So despite my beliefs, I buy all those things shoddy


Perhaps they're not that bad, maybe I should listen

To family and friends, who say that things that glisten


Are less valuable than those

Things not easily disposed


Like laughter and love,

And disaster and hope


And trust me, please do, I want to believe!

That good things come cheap, that emotions are free


But I've been raised to think, and maybe I've been wrong, 

That the only things of value are sang in money songs







Hi Cadence, how are you?

I like the flow of your pen.
