Why It Would Be Bad Just A Tad!

So it seems every human on the planet wants to be a millionaire. Heck, some of them even want to be a billionaire. But would that really be good, especially if other people knew it at your hood?

You are set for life.
There is no strife.
Can sit and relax.
Pay any property tax.

But what is this?
It's not all bliss.
Others know it.
They want a bit.

They bum and whine.
Pray to the divine.
That has become you,
With their boo hoo.

Nothing for something.
A familiar ring.
When welfare don't work.
You are their perk.

Calls from every charity.
Fund cancer at your sea.
Pfft wouldn't give them a dime.
But that's another rhyme.

Got banks on your ass.
They look at your mass.
They want you to invest.
Their advice is the best.

Need a huge gate,
To stop the "give me" trait.
Or just move altogether,
A storm you can't weather.

Called a jerk or worse,
Making them curse,
If you don't comply.
Some even want you to die.

Then the money they can take,
While they toss you in a lake.
So you hire a bodyguard.
He patrols the yard.

They just want to give a helping hand.
Isn't good old greed grand?
Your sanity may be lost.
So is it worth the cost?

Sadly, the cat is not speaking from experience at our sea. No millionaire near me. Would you want to be one if that was the case? One would have to disappear without a trace. It is just funny some of the things you hear when people know someone with dough is near. No wonder they hide away and act crass. I would too if such nuts bothered my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

    They can well do with lots of pretensions by putting on airs
    Trappings of wealth
    Shown at every step
    In real terms just empty on the inside but showing lots of flair

  2. I never understood why it was mandatory for some states to announce a lottery winner. I think that should be a personal choice, because like you said, it could be dangerous.

    1. I agree Rosey, as the cat is right people would be at their door. They should have a choice,but then again they know the rules when they play.

    2. Yep, I think that is super dumb
      That mandatory announcement can kiss my bum
      But I guess they want to put a face to the winner
      So everyone can sing for their dinner
      But becomes dangerous indeed
      As some who have won have had people call them and say they will kill themselves if they don't give them money at their feed
      I'd say go ahead
      If to me that were every said lol

    3. True, I guess it's worth the risk if they've gone ahead and bought the ticket.

  3. Some poor lady in her 20's with 4 kids just won the mega millions here in North Cackalacky. She lives in a very rural county about 30 minutes from me. Call me a cynic, but in about 5 years, I predict she's gonna be on that show "How the Lottery Ruined my Life".

  10. Wealth can be sword of Pericles.
    My neighbor across the road has spent close to million fencing his couple of thousand acreage. This is his vacation home for hunting and there is another millionaire down the road from Florida. What strikes me tragic is that if he sees you in a different car. He runs to get in his vehicle. He has to be so cautious.
    I think people get in trouble with their lottery money is when they lose their moral compass and let the money buy their way versus pay their dues the way everyone else does. If I ever win, I am moving to Hawaii. Of course I need to buy a lottery ticket first. I haven't bought one in over ten years.

  16. No one ever believes me when I say this, but no, I wouldn't. My brother-in-law is a millionaire and the most miserable person I know. His friends aren't really his friends, the only women that want him are leeches, and everyone else just thumbs their nose at him like, "Oh, he's just one of those rich assholes."

    Give me a nice 6-figure salary with minimal work involved. THAT'S my dream.

  17. It's interesting that after all this time I decide to stop in and you've got this particular post up. We've been in litigation with some nasty bastards who owe us LOADS of money. The Courts finally got the money out of them by sending U.S. Marshals to arrest them. Let me tell you, those feckers ponied right up to the bar after that.

    I've got so much money now it takes more than one bank to handle it. I'm not kidding, I'm rich as hell and loving it. The children are now counting the days till Mommy and Daddy die. We told them we're leaving it all to the cats.

    2. Ya, the feckers attempted to blackmail the Judge and they did it in writing. Well, that really pissed her off. She sent three U.S. Marshal's for each person. Wish I'd been a fly on the wall just to watch their faces when the cuffs were slapped on their wrists. Got the feckers at work too. Must have been soooo embarrassing.

      The only thing I've bought is a package of socks and some body lotion. I don't really want anything. Just going to get the house some new carpet and paint.

  18. I don't want to be a millionaire or billionaire. I just want enough money to survive. I've come close to be homeless before. I know what it's like not to have money and barely any food.

  24. I'd never want to be a millionaire or rich for that matter. Hmm, maybe a substantial few hundred-thousandaire.

    Unfortunately, you don't even need millions to need a big gate for the 'give me' trait. Way too many of those around already. :-)
