Good Health First

Money

Is good

But good health

Is the key

Not food

Not wealth.

 

In the cemetery

Nobody is wealthy

Everybody is poor

Go take a tour

And you’ll be sorry

Because money

Brings neither longevity

Nor infinity

Share your richness

Your lavishness

You’ll be blessed

And you’ll find happiness

And peace

To say the least.

 

Money

Is vanity

Indeed a necessity

Money

Is a leitmotiv

Learn how to prosper

To live

Better

And happier

With less wealth

But with good health

First

That’s the best

That’s being less

Greedy

About money.
