Based upon the tale of Midas.

Taking a sharp turn 

Upon an Illusions street

He met a place of palaces

Abandonment and common need

Confusion was the measurement

Shakey ground beneath his feet

Where money can buy anything

Apples lose all of  nourishment

Cutting hunger can take hold

When all that is left to eat

Is the point of gold.
