THE FANTASY OF BEING RICH

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

Addicted
To The Fantasy
Of Being Rich Someday

Afraid
To Face The Reality
Of Being Poor

They Hold Onto An
Endless Dream
Of Being Wealthy Too

And Gladly Vote
Against Their
Own Self Interest

As They Drink
Another
Cup Of Koolaid

  1. If there was no greed–we’d have no problems. If only it was that simple!

  2. Its not greed i dont agree.may be lack of contentment

    • Well, if you trace that to its final conclusion you kinda end up at greed. Lack of contentment leads to frustration; frustration leads to anger; anger leads to action; and then you get to “coveting=greed”. Notice, it is the Love of Money that is the root of all evil. It prevents us from having compassion and being generous. Just me!

      • If u want it more than necessary that may be lack of contentment but itvu want is it all yours loads and loads of it thts greed.asking for wht is necessary is hardly greed

  3. To prey on the poor by promising them everything they want to hear. Might that Kool-Aid be orange flavored?
