Treasure Island

Rema Prasanaa


Financial analyst penned a life plan for me
where 20% must go to stocks and shares
I did it for good but lost when stock markets collapsed

Plan number two to invest 20% in real estate for future,
hold good as an asset, I ventured for future
but lost when government acquired my future for express way

Mega on magnum mutual funds another 20%
lost again on mutual effects of
inflation and fuel price hike

Wise again on plan 20% on gold as its glitter sure for long
again that smart thief tamed my shine
on a powerful mission

Not systematic,20% remained there
in saving bank accounts
and it is safe without any designed return

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
