They Spend Their Money – Written March 2009 (Aged 34)

They Spend Their Money

they spend their money on things
things they do not need
it is easier to spend a fortune
than it is to actually believe
and a lifetime of harm,
a lifetime of hurt
it makes for greedy fingers
and idea that this is what they deserve
they buy things they do not need
things which suit the view
but they will not stop the bleed
they say they are real,
but that is so hard to believe
living with a lower demographic
but ensuring the gates are closed
to avoid all that is tragic
spending money on things
and trying to find the magic
money just like water,
a cure of all that means nothing
bring those ideas to the slaughter
they spend their money on things




James Garratt – March 2009
