Gold – #Etheree

mongolian chess set

Gold –
Rub it
On your face.
Money’s the best –
Matches all skintones,
Conceals all blemishes,
Confers impressions of youth.
Trade inner truth for leverage;
Wear your influence with outward pride.
Your gold will wear someone else when you’re gone.


This was written for the Colleen Chesebro Tanka Tuesday #132, Influence and Perception. Synonyms of the prompt words are in bold.

    Somehow this reminds me of Mr. T… All that weight.
    I also just read about a country that has a vending machine that dispenses gold.
    Bars or jewelry… Gotta be wealthy country – they have to refill it twice a week!
