Hard earned feelings are often spent far too swiftly
on those products of desire they don't really need,
and before the month ends, they're scraping the barrel
for someone to buy back just a bite of their greed.
And then there's those dithering, fastidious souls
who let their fortunes amass in their airtight heart,
but for all that it holds, the heart weighs too heavy
and the seams that hold it compressed will fall apart.
So how best to spend those soft somethings in your mind
when stringent savings rot and capricious spendings break?
I will keep the purse-strings of my heart tightly sealed
'til there's an investment on future's profit to make.
