money can't buy happiness

a wise man once avowed
but you can choose your misery
that made me laugh out loud
.
oh yes, i was a poor man
but in time i grew quite rich
i found myself delivered
from the pain of squalor's itch
.
these days i am wrapped up
in weighty capitals and gains
though golden chains are beautiful
alas, they still are chains
.
i think about my past
when sudden pleasures were a thrill
a chance to rest a bit
as you went trudging up a hill
.
these pleasures aren't as rich
when with cold cash they can be bought
i throw away dead presidents
without a second thought
.
sometimes i think i'll give it up
and let myself fly free
and give away my wealth
to a deserving charity
.
for joy can gallop off 
if you don't pull back on the reins
though golden chains are beautiful
alas, they still are chains
