The Ageing Millionaire Joe - Poem by Francis Duggan

That money does speak every language we have often heard before
Old Joe the wealthy developer he is eight years with three score
With seventeen great grandchildren he has left his second wife
And many young nubile females want to be part of his life
'Tis said he is a good lover though years beyond his prime
A few he takes out to dinner and buys them a good time
And after back to his grand new storey home for a passionate night
He has learned from his two marriages that marriage for him is not right
Of buying and selling houses he has made his fortune many times a millionaire
And a few beautiful young women of his wealth would like to share
They think they will win his heart by going with him to bed
But Joe is a canny old bloke his heart doesn't rule his head
That money speaks every language is something all does seem to know
I just gave you one example in the ageing millionaire Joe.
