For the poorest of paupers she flaunts,
always the unreachable dream.
For the wealthiest of kings she dances,
ruling his heart through cunning means.
Many long to touch her, to hold her,
and some have accomplished the task.
Her embrace is intoxication,
and in her essence they long to bask.
Her existence causes war and ruin,
For the covetous heart will not abstain.
Their undying devotion she has won,
her praises fall from their lips like rain.
As whispered promises fill their thoughts,
Her provocative beauty captures their sight.
today, she fulfills the unquenchable desire,
Tomorrow, without warning she takes flight.
“People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.”
I Timothy 6:9-10 (NIV)
