Good Health, Love And Money - Poem by Hebert Logerie

Good Health, Love and Money
Anyone, who possesses these three ingredients,
Is set for life, for a great time. Good health
Is undeniably the most important one. Once death
Surreptitiously reads your fingerprints,
It is time to go where no one has ever been.

Love is indispensable like the air that we breathe,
Like water and fire that we need to survive, like the spleen
That cleanses the body, and like the enamel of our teeth.
Love plays a potpourri of tricks; she changes like a chameleon,
She can be sweet like honey, and deadly like a sharp harpoon.

Oh! Money, money is elusive and ungrateful like a thief.
She is greedy, necessary and vital in our daily life.
Money can buy neither good health, nor love;
She behaves like she is from somewhere above;
She can buy great meals from many ritzy restaurants.
