Rich Man, Rich Man

how do you dream?
do you dream atop golden seas?
rich man rich man
how do you wish?
you have it all it dose seem
rich man rich man
how do you do
ive got a priceless jewel for you
you can not wear it
and it bears not name
rich man rich man
life is not a game

    You should not apologise about it. It is not a bad poem. It doesn't matter who it was directed at as the reader can imagine a target for you (Report) Reply

    May not be a great one, but a good poem. You could express some feelings which readers would interpret differently, but you have conveyed your thoughts. (Report) Reply

How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
