They Can Not Live Without That Fix

MONEY
MONEY
MONEY

Less is the significance.
And the importance,
Of one's quality of life.
Once the having of money,
And the affect of it...
Became the impression,
One wanted to make.
To flaunt and have it,
And from their pockets drip!

MONEY
MONEY
MONEY

And the satisfaction teased,
Would increase with a taste...
For more of it.
Until those not having it,
Were quickly despised.
And with character assassinations...
There became a rise of ruined lives,
With deciet, lies and alibis!

MONEY
MONEY
MONEY

Drifting in mental fits,
Are those today being weened away from it.
Crazed in protests...
With voices raised demanding,
And with their minds splitting into pieces!
A feeding of greed has done this.
At the expense of their consciousness!

MONEY
MONEY
MONEY

And just like addicts!
They can not live without that fix!

MONEY
MONEY
MONEY

They want yours and mine!
And anything that looks like it!
