I’m Happy

I’m happy when
no pain intrudes
money’s not an interlude
good, sufficient food
more than what’ll do
when it comes to clothes
shoes, transportation
technology
when I don’t think about
what I must do without
every night in day

and I don’t hear the liars
the ignorant at play
saying money you know
is the root of all evil
or money can’t buy happiness
as they watch the poor
shuffle sideways
when it comes to this or that
which they keep under their hats
no problem when it comes
as long as they know where to shop
