Affluent

Why fluent your affluence at me

Do you wish it to impress me

Do you perceive it will

Do you think me that shallow

Or are trying to make me

Jealous about all you have

Because you know I have nothing

And you want me to see what I lack

But I have a family and we share love

And though we barely have enough

We make do and are happy

So flaunting your wealth in front of me

Means very little but it can irk me

That you can act with such insensitivity

Rubbing my nose in all you’ve accrued is just cruel

And knowing that I would never do that to you

Makes me in the end a better person than you.
