gladiators
hank

i think if you asked
 1
most would choose love
 2
but fiscal responsibility
 3
is a worthy adversary
 4
picture an arena
 5
a gladiator field
 6
arches all around a festering, spitting crowd
 7
love against money man they'd cheer
 8
 
 
money could have a lance
 9
love might have a net
 10
 
 
most would expect and side with money
 11
but only to hide their embarrassment
 12
for they'd be internally rooting for love
 13
 
 
money has a lance
 14
and love has a net
 15
money is the cumbersome beast
 16
we'd laugh at when outsmarted
