Baby, I'M Ready To Live The Fantasy - Poem by Elena Plotkin

Tired of scrounging for pennies
And working for nickels and dimes.
I want to tip in all twenties
And stop living the hard times.
Tired of always window shopping,
And patching up my old clothes.
I want to be stylish and eye-popping,
Better than the models in fashion shows.
Tired of living in dinge and squalor,
On furniture that’s falling apart and old.
I want to have a fancy parlor,
On a large estate of marble and gold.
Tired of cleaning and cooking,
After a long, hard day of working.
I don’t care who’s out there looking,
Let a full household staff do their lurking.
Tired of the same faces and old places,
With no means to go anywhere.
I want to see what life embraces,
And travel here, there, and everywhere.
Hey, even if it leads me into bankruptcy,
Baby, I’m ready to live the fantasy.

    Elena, i feel SO SORRY for ya. i am immediately directing my secretary (the one who is NOT busy sitting on my lap) (and NOT the one giving me my manicure) (and CERTAINLY not the one who is doing th-th-a-a-AT! to me right now! ! !) to make up a cheque (we multibillionaires don't say 'check'!) , payable to Elena Plotkin in-care-of PoemHunter.com (don't blame us if you don't receive it) , for the piddling amount of $5,000,000 US. [Ka-ching! ]

    I want to tip in all twenties................ i light my cigars with twenties. sometimes it takes two or three to get it lit.
    [a comma after tip would have helped me] [ i was trying to make sense out of 'tip in', as in 'tip into the pot'.....or is that dip? '] [no one said we rich guys are smart! but we DO have loads more dough than you ever will; we STILL say 'dough']

    .....maybe my favorite lines................, BUT you may need an ophthalmologist to patch up your eyes! .
