PERSONAL FINANCE

by Jnana Hodson

living within means
is so simple

if you have an income
and spend nothing

if you mooch off others

if you withhold charity

if you don’t have children
or other dependents

if you’re wealthy

or maybe if you have land
or wander with goats

~*~

living within means
is so simple

without an army
or navy

or invaders

~*~

living within means
is so simple

if you try keeping down with the Browns
rather than up with the Joneses

if you have nothing to fear
would be stolen
