When money talks

7 Dec

When money talks

all the wrong people listen

for the rest of us money talks

in a language that confounds us

even as it persuades us

Money lies inside a pot

at the end of a broken hearted rainbow

When opportunity knocks

all the wrong people come to the door

shoving their desire into opportunity’s mouth

and rudely riding it down into the ground

and giving birth to monsters

for the rest of us opportunity knocks

and it sends a shiver up our spine

“who, who is it?’ we ask in a voice that shakes

but opportunity rarely introduces itself

it passes on to the next

like a Goddess’s breath

Money talks

Opportunity knocks

and centuries of wrongs

will never make a right
