Money…will you kiss me goodnight
Laying the day to rest
Will you bless me with children
Listening to their laughter at crest

Money…will you allow me to sit
In the classroom of pain
Learn from its schoolers, study
Its ethos in knowledge to obtain

Money…will you build for me a home
With its foundations unshakable
Will you consecrate me a family
With its values impeccable

Money…will you hold my hand through
Lonely nights of forsaken
Will you whisper intimates of memories
Of hearts memories, dances awoken

Money…will you carry me when my knees
Are nailed to the earth so weak
Will you echo the silence of words
I am unable to speak

Money…will you earn me respect from
Your blood of green
Or will my respect be received by payments
of principles supreme

Money…will your funds be reliable to
Spend on unquestionable ethics
Will the expense of loving you eventuate
in fashions of mockery by way of mimics

Money…will you advise me in counsel
Shake my hand in pledge
Will you entice me in false balance
Store up wealth on securities edge

Money…will you vow to me a lifetime
Of unconditional commitment
Will you promise me the seed of the land
And all its fruits of investment

Money…they say the love of it is the
root of all evil
Choking the borrower, servant to the
lender in rival

Money…love you I will not, employ you
I will sensibly
For where my treasure lay in riches there
May heart too forcibly
