Money Surely Does Matter - Poem by Francis Duggan

A beautiful young woman with wavy shoulder length hair of dark brown
She goes by the title of Pride of the Town
In her early twenties yet to be a wife
Though she does have a far older man in her life.

He is in his early seventies those who know him do say
With anti ageing creams and blond hair dye he covers his wrinkles and gray
But he has heaps of money a substantial amount
And money to most people does seem to count.

The lover of the former lover of his oldest grandson that does seem a bit sad
That he lost his woman to his dear old grand-dad
Money speaks every language as some like to say
In this instance it surely does seem this way.

For a man who is ageing many years past his life's prime
To make love to one in her twenties is never a crime
He wooed her from the arms of his oldest grandson
Money surely does matter when all is said and done.
