$$$ - Poem by Sedale Salera

The thing that everyone wants, what we all need
We need it to survive, to fill our greed
It’s made of cotton, not of paper
And it makes most people hate to share
However it’s the root of all evil, this people forget
It can corrupt as many people as it can get

People always lose it, mostly on the ground
Its money, we need it, and it shouldn’t be around
Many people have killed for it and done more bad things
All just for the sake of a little bling, bling

It has many different names: pesos or even euros
But evil has many shapes, that’s just how it goes
Although money can be a gift from God
It can be a christmas gift, to buy an iPod
You must understand that money is bad
Its really hard though, it blinds you, makes you glad

A world with no money, that would be paradise trust me
Unfortunately we do, now look at our economy
I know what you’re thinking, this is really stupid and whack
But just don’t judge me, until you know the facts
