The piece of metal or paper
The world calls money, gives power.
With it, you can travel round the world
And become powerful and bold.
Without it, you are helpless
As problems stare you in the face.
Depending on your choices or stars,
It lifts you to the pinnacle
Or brings ruin
As it offers both good health,
And untimely death on a platter.
Spend it wisely for a good life
Or, perish alone, while it still remains.
