Money Is Honey - Poem by Shashikant Nishant Sharma

Money is Honey
Money money money
O my dear honey
Tinkering sound
Of Rupee, dollar and pound
The world ruled by capitalist
Made man more materialist
He toils day and night
To get the deceiving delight
Of the money and wealth
Risking spirit heavenly and health
Being clever and cunning
Man tries to find new meaning
In the material possession
Relish on wealth accumulation
Money is the medium not the means
To live life, why spilling beans
This is the irony
O my dear honey
Money, money and money

{This was written after a random thinking over the corrupting influence of money and how it has changed the meaning of life.}

    Money is the honey whoever rules. We have to sweat day and night to meet out the expenses like dowry, Education, enjoying comforts in this material world. Those who make spiritual pursuits also receive dollars and pounds to plunge into the ocean of dirt. the delight may be deceiving but people don't hesitate to beg, steal, borrow that honey.
