Money Is Two Edged

Money makes folk happy.
Money makes folk sad.
But few would e’er regret
The monies that they’ve had.
Some waste lots of money
Buying lots of things.
Then, suddenly, realize—
Money does have wings.
They find them looking back,
Feeling so annoyed—
Longing for the ton of cash
That they once enjoyed.
