Money is not everything

by Michael D Nalley

A reincarnated egg once said if I had a nickel every time I was laid.
I would be doing alright, I could make more than selling cool aid
If I had a dime every time a word I wrote was read
I could really make a fantastic living until I was dead.
Some say that there is truth that is so hard to find
It is not what you make that is important. It's what you leave behind.

Lol oh wow! :) this is sooo cute! at the same time kinda sad to me for some reason my favorite part was the third and fourth line since that's true for humanity and animals! :) just cause they don't talk doesn't mean they don't understand 5/5
