Bulging bank accounts,
Numbers bursting through the screen like an overloaded shopping bag,
Finer living, not no frills,
Cars with diamond plated wheels,
Platinum covered cutlery,
Lavish parties continuing until the rise of the bats,
Colossal entertainment screens consume square meters,
Face projected in the media,
Scents confused with finance,
Never quiet sleeping quarters,
People like a revolving door, enter then exit your life,
Companions not commitment,
A man ponders, what is wealth, to me?
He sits in a coffee shop, recollecting all these components,
A man, tatty, with a canine friend passes the window,
The man sighs ‘he is wealthier then I‘
