They Gave Away His Hard Earned Pay - Poem by Yor Nella
It matters not how much he's got
it's not enough he wants more stuff.
Unsatisfied harder he tried
acting so rash to get more cash.
An awful toll he'd sold his soul
and when he died so unsatisfied
they gave away his hard earned pay.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
After he died his estate was divided between 12 distant relatives who he had not seen for 50+ years.
my wife and I were the only ones attending his funeral
