Finances -/- Affluence

6:1
Finances

One flawed, tiny diamond
Outprices perfect pebbles

Without watchtowering one’s riches
Wealth sqaunders swiftly

Money employed invites interest –
Money saved, thieves

Triumverate disgraces replace riches;
Drink, dice, demonesses

***

As rogues assist ventures
Finances mysteriously vanish

Loutheads emptying wallets liberally
Begging pennies soon

Disown currency unfairly acquired
Despite obvious advantages


6:2
Affluence

Lowborn fortune saltsea thirst
Noble, mountain spring

What advantage immense riches
Without prestigious status

Accumulating mighty financial scimitars
Humiliates arrogant foes

Wealth’s persistantly obsessive accumulation
Afflicts aristocratic classes

***

Our very well fed
Of hungers ignorant

Decadence among starving abstinence
Society’s secret thief

Happiness depending on money
Never true happiness
