The Market

Buy some stock.
Sell it, now!
Oh, buy more!
You've not enough...

Market plung...
What to do?
You were greedy
Undoing you.

You had money.
You were wise.
But your desire
Was your demise.

Made your thousands
In a month!
Lost them in
One day! Tough!

"Oh, no risk,"
You told yourself.
"I can do this...
Need no help!"

Then the market
Started to fall.
"Oh, my goodness,
Sell it all!"

You had much
When you began,
But adventure
Brought your end.

"Look, I made
2K, today!"
Lost it all
In just two days.

Worldly goods
Are only that.
Next day gone-
So you fret!

Thinking you
Were self-sustained,
Now, you find
No one to blame.

A flower blooms
Only one day.
Tomorrow, "Where's it?"
You say.

Spend your time
On eternal things.
They will last
And solace bring!

What you own?
Guard it well.
Don't fall under
Satan's spell!

Jesus has
A better plan!
Leave your wealth
In His strong hands.


Matthew 6:24
"No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money."

New International Version,Zondervan

Wow! Right on topic and the short lines of the stanzas added to the "nervous" and "quick" actions of the trader.
Good writing!
