    Its not vanity,
    in my heart,
    nor is it greed,
    I try to do my part,
    but it all comes back to me,
    there's a little one on my back,
    he keeps kicking and punching,
    but he won't show me where his gold is at,

    purely you, couldn't notice the day,
    as it was right in front of you,
    had to lie to an omnipotent God,
    to get myself out of that creek,
    had to wrestle with a leprechaun,
    he stills calls me a thief,

    I found Alladins lamp,
    he gave me three wishes,
    I said Gold, Gold, Gold,
    will it make you less acenine,
    the genie said, so I said do what your told,
    I had as much as a guy could ask,
    but my heart wasn't exactly full,
    I spent it all on women and bribery,
    now they call me the poorest fool,

    I had to kidnap a leprechaun,
    but he punched me real low,
    and said damn us all if you get rich again,
    cause everyone knows gold doesn't change an asshole.

    Dear Erik,

    :roflmao:This was an exceptional tale! I loved it from the moment I read the title! You delivered this in a playful, and brilliant manner. Where did the inspiration come from? Yet another hue, to your rainbow Erik. You, in my opinion, have found that pot of Gold, for you scribe with a Golden pen. You continue to absolutely amaze me. I just read it again, and laughed again! That last line is brilliant my friend!! Loved it!!:bravo:

    thanks Kim, the title just poped in my head this morning,
    and I just let my mind bend and shape,
    really in a joyful mood so humourous was the way to go,
    plus I don't do humor much, had to match a poem with the hippo I guess,
    thanks kim

    Alright, Erik!!! Funny in word, great story (all of our stories, I am afraid) and a truth one cannot deny as the end. Money changes on one...relationships DO. Great post, my friend.
