All that glitters is not gold
How often one had been told
Chasing the dream of fools
Hoping to strike it cool

Wherefrom the urge to hasten
Getting elements of value that glisten
Not gold but a ommon path to accomplish
Rendered by a grand wish

Of getting their hands full
Untold riches pristine in bagfuls
Not aware of hidden diamonds
The unlucky ones could only lament

Smart ones  exploited the opportunity
Striving hard not to depend on charity

For MLMM's  Tale Weaver #66: -  all that glitters


  1. That one had a nice flow to it!
    I bet the charity was really happy.

  2. Sometimes one has to stop and look around every once in a while or fools they be
