Sulaiman Mohd Yusof

* Out Of The Box *

Gold, silver and bronze
Maker of loser
Rich trounces the poor
Check and balance
Is needed

To move a mountain
You need money

A plain simple

    A good simple way to describe a problem that has faced man for a long time. You can certainly take elements of this for future poems.

    Good luck on that on Sulaiman. Separating the rich from their gold is like driving trucks without wheels. It doesn't happen too much and it doesn't go to far from home. It might be plain to you but it certainly isn't simple for them. a poet friend.. RH PEAT

    but only the amount varies
    rich need big amount

    The true face of our evolutionary arms race
    Where pipe dreams are pipe dreams
    And money is money!
    Parag Khanna talks about why WW3 has not yet been shown in a theater near you!
    Statistically speaking, WW3 should have already sold out!
    Put an end to the trilogy –
    (Do you not want to see how it ends?)
    The game has shifted, from zero-sum to non-zero-sum –
    Globalization (the internet?) is our savior, not Jesus Christ!

    It brings itself to a short and simple point

    there is such a fine line between success and failure

    And it is true sometimes you can move mountains with money. but i guess it depends on the mountain.

    I like it

    To move a mountain
    You need money

    A plain simple

    I don't think that it's a plain simple, Sulaiman, but it's your opinion and you are successful to make your point.
