The Money Making Machine

By Niti Majethia, Age 15, India

 

There was a call from my future today
They said they needed some light, it wasn’t too bright
So I handed them a lamp, called hard work
And I handed them a map, so they could come to an ivy league
The map was called dedication
They said they hadn’t eaten anything since days
I handed them a bowl of fruit called faith
And they said, you will make it to the destination
They said you will dream it
And you will achieve it
But they needed something else
They needed a drink that keeps them going
A drink called money and power.
But then I cut the phone.

    Nice poem, it suggests that the speaker is not greedy and likes hard work
