New Year & Prosperity

TANKA

****
prosperity more
a new year wish ratified
not in my wallet
I have worked pulled many rope
the taxman laughed in glee
**
new year new hope
prosperity for good deeds
conspire to help all
put your money in causes
push back the threat of hell
**
new years eve all fun
short memories of hate war
life lost destruction
hypocrites in denial
prosperity like hell
**
nasty evil men
exploiting charities wrong
overthrow badness
new years wishes for riches
prosperity for the poor
**
health wealth good wishes
beg prosperity for all
new year hope pursue
discrimination no none
extinguish fear ignite joy
