I do not like money and there’s the rub
the reason, I imagine, that I do not have it.
However I do like Things and that includes
of course the things money cannot buy but
also those it can, for example
party dresses and fancy shoes
windows that slide up and down
open and close
doors that shut properly
bottles of champagne
books baubles chocolates in boxes
a roof that never leaks
and oh if I had a bit more money
maybe just one more dog.
