To those who strive hard tenaciously to attain prosperity,

A presumed panacea to end their much reviled paucity,


In an inexorable quest they get baldness and big bellies,

Without getting rewards that the grim venture carries,


Save for some who shirk erosion for a while feeling so pleased,

But in the end it means little for them, an honest advice to heed,


That when they die, they leave their valued treasures behind,

But they must carry good deeds, an earnest plea to remind,


To steer through an ethereal journey they will need some light,

To cruise seamlessly on a perilous, eerie and unknown flight,


Oh friends; accumulate some riches to accompany you,

To put thee across safely and to lessen your woe,


Feed hungry for its task of the Creator be solemnly advised,

When you work for Him, feel pleased, fulfilled and gratified.
