It is not what you want!

It is not what you want
It is what you can get!

Ok, let's set the scenario

Greenbacks oozing out of his ears
He has assets overseas
His bank accouns never seems to dry up
You are a joint account holder
You have access to his accounts
Not all but one of the lucrative ones
And he had not withdrawn the signing privileges yet
He provides in addition a regular monthly allowance
He pays for your purchases

Let's see, what else?

A Porsche in the garage for your own use
A mansion to stay in
A holiday retreat by the sea
A posh apartment in New York
all in your name!

Presents galore on birthdays,Valentine's
Or even surprises on flimsiest of excuses
Holidays overseas according to your fancies

So! what else do you want?

Ok, don't tell me
Not now!

Ok, for all that I can manage to get for you
I don't want to beat around the bush
You are through with him
Right?

But when am I getting my %
My advance payment
Being your trusted attorney!
