Funny Poems 3

Mr Greedy bought a money tree

    Which was so very small.

He planted it and cared for it

    And watched as it grew tall.


He wouldn’t take a holiday

    And couldn’t even sleep,

For he guarded it and nurtured it

    Like a shepherd with his sheep.


This lack of sleep and worry

    Caused Old Greedy to get ill.

He didn’t live till harvest-time

    To see his dreams fulfilled.


Remember Mr Greedy

    When you think about your wealth

For there’s more to life than money

    There’s your happiness and health!
