All that glitters...
He Thought For a Moment He Was Rich

Monday morning’s meteoric minute:
A poor old fellow grew suddenly rich,
The lottery, no; he’d never win it,
He saw a sparkle on the sidewalk which

Shimmered and glittered like a diamond,
He hurriedly hobbled, quickened his pace,
Faster than a blaster, double-time and,
The lone runner in this high-income race.

But when he arrived it was just a bust,
The sun illumined crumpled cellophane,
Wealth, just like that, blown away in a gust,
Easy come, easy go, no loss, no gain.
