Lifetimes In The Chase - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The money minded have lost time.
A devotion to the acquisition of it,
Has left them drained.
With nothing left to show,
But credits and debt...
With dwindling deposits.

And yet they've spent lifetimes in the chase.
With hopes that a refined taste,
Will take them out of the race.

The money minded have lost time.
A devotion to the acquisition of it,
Has left them drained.
With nothing left to show,
But credits and debt...
With dwindling deposits.

And yet they've spent lifetimes in the chase.
With hopes that a refined taste,
Will take them out of the race.
With a looking down from pedestals...
Upon those they've disgraced.
But those they thought would be disgraced,
Are not the ones hiding...
A shame that traces their faces.
