Money - Poem by Hebert Logerie

Money is the root of all evil,
Money was blessed by the devil,
Money, money can kill,
Money can cheat, steal…
Ask the disbarred lawyer,
What this sad creature
Can do: It can commit suicide,
Money, money can divide,
Money is not what you think it is,
Having money is not going to put you really at ease,
On the contrary, you’ll have fewer friends,
And more creatures showing their hands,
Claws, guns and deadly weapons.
Money will not send you to the heavens,
Money, money is dirty and evil;
Money is a sick devil.
Money and women don’t mix,
Just like alcohol and driving.
Having hush money is not a quick fix,
But a dangerous way to go down the ravine.
Money is not what you think it is,
Having money is not going to put you really at ease.
Money exists to be spent:
To buy food, clothes, and to pay the rent.
Be careful with money,
Money is not a faithful honey.

    Excellent Sir…
    Let me write a few lines:

    [1] Ramakrishna Paramshanshadev [the disciple of Whom is Cyclonic Humane swami Vivekananda] opined ‘Lucre and Lust are source of delusion.

    [2] Sri Aravinda [great Maharshi Supreme Sage] also opined that we’re just custodian of His riches and if we misuse He will put out us from custodianship…

    So money has to be used in wise and prudent way.

    we need money to survive, on that there is no lie.
    so use the money sparingly, for thats all that can be. (Report) Reply

    Too much of anything
    Can't be lacking
    Problem solving
    Without Learning


    Too much money
    Won't make you ready
    To face your greed
    Just let it breed


    It's not the money that makes all cosmos turned into chaos, but people who consider it as their ultimate goal and willing to go through various means to attain it. At least, that's my opinion. Nice writings.... (Report) Reply

    Some parts of this poem are true. But money is an inanimate object. It just is. It's not good or bad. It is what people's thoughts and desires are that exist behind the money. Good write though. (Report) Reply

    As you say, money makes many things in this world. There is a saying, 'There is no place in the Heaven without God's grace and there is no place in this world without Money's grace.' (Report) Reply

    This poem flows very well and has a good concept. I agree with every statement you make about money, for it is dirty as the devil and stains one's soul in greed - just as you say. Perfect! (Report) Reply

    When focus changes to money is when the problems arise. I think everybody needs money to pay what you owe and settle, but it should not be a goal or obsession. The crave for money, the greed for more creates issues. The issue is highlighted well though; like a statutory warning on the cigarette packs. (Report) Reply
