Thousand and 1 yens



Trust not in God,
fall not in love,
believe not in prayer.
Wish not, desire not,
dream not...

For what matters,
are dead presidents.
It's the dead static ones,
that speak for you,
for me,
for the living.

It's the dough,
that kneads us.
A yen without a yen,
as good as impotent men.

Inches of paper,
wrap the globe.
Spin spin spin,
like a woman on gin.

Lit candles,
bring no romance.
It's the bundles.
For beauty lies,
in the hands,
of the shareholder.

Crave till the grave.
Till death,
tears man apart.




*Title crypt: Thousand(M) and 1 (ONE) yens(Y)...Money
Yens=Y,Money,Desire/Longing

Is potency the only thing a 'man' has????

Vicky said...

was expecting this...here i go..

A yen without a yen ...impotent men..

A desire without money is much like an impotent man..You can wish for something, dream about it but cant really "do much" without money...

der are other things a man can do and "has" ..likewise life is not only about having a yen...ders more to it..

watsay?
