Anyone too broke or hungry
to know better will agree,
Money is a blessing.

You make money with a briefcase
or a shovel but mostly
by pretending. Movies about Lenny Bruce
make money, and priests and cops
make money, and they’ll tell you,
Money isn’t everything.

When I was a virgin,
I thought making love
would make a difference.
Sometimes I still do.
It’s like that with money.
