THE FOOLISH RICH MAN…POEM

James P. Gram

It seems a farmer had some fields
That gave him some terrific yields;
Made him rich as he could be
Known through the whole country

“There’s so much grain I’ve got to store
Barns won’t hold it anymore;
Stores are just too small and few
I’ll tear them down and build anew”

“This time I’ll be both smart and wise
I will make them oversize;
Once I’ve built them up to snuff
Then I think ‘twill be enough”

“When I have cared for all my wealth
I’ll sit back; enjoy myself;
I’ll eat and drink; it will be fun
To contemplate the work I’ve done”

“Just look at all the wealth I’ve stored
Gold and grain; a hefty hoard;
It’s mine, all earned by my own hand
From the produce of my land”

But then God spoke, “You fool, you see
Your soul is now required of thee;
What good the wealth that you laid by
When life is over and you die”

“Your whole life was a selfish plan
You never shared with God or man;
You laid no treasure up with God
So now you leave this mortal sod”

“What good the treasure you have stored
When none is given to the Lord?
You would have gotten all you needed
If you the Kingdom first had heeded”
