Would You Switch To Get Rich?

So the cat saw this question the other day as he was out and about at his bay and thought it would be fun. It is worth a run. We shall see what is really inside thee. Of course you could lie to me.

Would you rather be,
In life's great spree,
Honest and poor,
Broke as can be at your shore,

Or dishonest and rich,
With enough dough to make many itch?
Maybe a mix and match,
If you can get away with a batch?

Depends on the extent?
A little dishonest won't make anyone bent.
Politicians do it every day.
So why not you say.

Could make up for it in the end.
Fine some good charities and send.
Unless you stick to the greed.
Then you may become another weed.

So what is it?
Dishonest a bit?
As long as you get rich,
A little that can go off without a hitch.

But is that a slippery slope?
Would one be a dope?
Got away with it once,
So tries again like a dunce.

Wanting more and more.
So dishonesty they explore.
Down the rabbit hole.
Goodbye honest soul.

Or stay honest and be poor?
Be something of lore.
Hobo with a Shotgun.
Yeah, sadly I gave that movie a run.

So what will it be?
Any answer at your sea?
Did you have to think?
Afraid to put it to ink?

For the cat it is simple as can be.
Depends on the situation for me.
If it's screwing over a bank or something like that.
Then I could care less at my blog mat.

I guess there is a breaking point for everyone, or a line for when things will be done. Hurting no one at all I could be a dishonest cat to bring on riches stat. But other than that, no way. I'll stick with the 9-5 slave bay. So what about you? Easy answer come due? I know too much thinking and little sass today from my poor little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  14. i think both is difficult - being rich and being poor.
    for me - i echo the apostle paul who asked for sth. in the middle...not so poor that he has to steal bread - not so rich that he would get proud...

  19. I have to agree with Claudia. One just needs to make the best of what ever they have and enjoy what little that they have. It does seem that rich people are sometimes miserable.

  20. I see those Rich Kids of Instagram and think if I were rich and my kids turned out to be douche bags like them, I'd much rather be poor.

  21. Hmmmm, it depends what I was being dishonest about. Am I ruining a lot of lives or simply somehow rich by lying about my weight? ha.

    But no, I definitely think that Bernie Madoff would have been much better as a pauper. Riches aren't always worth it.

    1. lol more along the lines of weight
      Yeah, rich isn't always a great fate

  24. I actually would like to think like you said-if it involves a bank and no harm comes to people, maybe but then i know me-I could not do it without feeling guilt-that's just the way I am built

    1. I'd shove the guilt aside
      And smile really wide lol

  25. No one really knows for sure until the proposition and how that proposition is presented. For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God Romans 3:23.

    That said, poverty can take many forms. I would rather be poor than corrupt.

  28. Yep, all depends on the situation, and how dishonest I would have to be. Don't want anyone to get hurt - except the politicians. But, I've gotten used to being broke and wouldn't know what to do with TOO much money, so not sure what I'd be willing to do to get rich. I'll just stick to writing about criminals and live vicariously. And hope to get rich that way.

  29. Honesty is not always the best policy. I should be, But, it's not. I'd rather be honest, but if it means that I will lose a lot of things I may fib a bit. When it comes to banks and big business, I have been screwed over so many times that I might be less than honest. They lie to people all the time.
