I was born rich
So, what did I do in a past life
to get busted back
to 9 to 5?
I broke too many rules
fraternized with too many women
I was cavalier with my freedom.
“You still think we live in a meritocracy,” my friend screams.
“Well, I believe in the billionaire spirit.”
“We should get rid of people at the top.”
“But I want to be up there. Mountains are beautiful.”
“What? We need to spread the wealth around.”
Maybe he’s right. Money means different things to different people.
Just having it,
is not enough.
On the tipping point
I am a creative volcano
removed from reality.
I see supermen
who stand up there
and I love it
Monuments to something
beyond the week.
who needs more or wants more
Having it all
is not holding it
and knowing it’s there.
