In Other Words, poor…

Patricia’s challenge is to write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word poor:

She says : We don’t have a lot of money, but are richer in other things.
He says: It’s the privilege of the poor to say that.
She replies: I suppose if you’re rich, you can live in misery in style.
He says: Money is a curse, she loves only my purse.

Moral: Poor isn’t necessarily financial.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
