False Paradise

False Paradise short poem

If time is gold, I rank among the rich,
Much time I have, nobody bothers me,
No school, no chores, all leisure without hitch,
Untied with work, from obligations, free;

Think you, that seems unwise,
A life given to play;
Labor, none to despise,
And in mirth, there to stay;

My world, a virtual playground in the sun,
A moonlit getaway during the night,
A total haven of none to be done,
A paradise of graven art delight;

But no dream on which to embark,
For the poor statue in the park.

A tongue in cheek verse about those who dreams of idyllic days with no work and just to stand and gaze at the world around, written through the eyes of a statue in the park but so true for all those who desire such a False Paradise ..Wonderful @Reyvrex_Reyes!


Wonderful write with an excellent twist in the end.

False people will always try to exploit you when the odds are against you Dissimulating the blame with stupid excuses and lies too They constantly try to turn the situation around on you But fortunately what goes around comes around
