I am not ashamed of myself
I have not earned a single penny
I say this quite often to myself
as if it is a citation.
Money favours a few
I am not the one
as I always hunt for it
search with an effort.
Right from my twentieth year
money never stayed with me
it comes and goes
as often and in speed.
I am frugal and pennywise
do not call me pound foolish
as I have not seen a full pound
all the years in my life.
Having lived for a half century and ten
I still look for money everywhere
it trickles from nowhere all the time
I spend whatever I have at that time.
Does anyone like to live like me?
I see no hands up in acceptance
Oh ! no what a wish I propose
a hand to mouth existence in the goal.
