SEALING YOUR FATE
by Vivian Yeung 6U
It defines what you do and more,
It’s what you live and die for.
You work for it. It’s your dream.
You rave. You slave. Just for the gleam.
It makes life stable,
Puts food on the table.
A roof overhead,
So you have less to dread.
It does glint. Glisten. Glitter. Shine.
It answers your prayers to Thine.
It will forever dictate
And, make no mistake, seal your fate.
Each and every colourful bill.
This so-called commodity of goodwill.
Defined by greed,
Self-indulgence is your creed.
This medium for material possession,
The cause of every little transgression.
As you work nine to five,
Slowly, surely, it devours your life.
