Centre of Attention

You married a man for money,

now it’s too late

to see the error of your ways.

As you grow older

the emptier you feel

no matter how much he pays.

A comfortable existence

is all you thought life was about

holidays and expensive jewellery

and a new outfit

for every time you went out.

All of this was fine when

you were younger and

the centre of attention,

but now you are old and

your name is rarely mentioned.

Money could buy you everything

but happiness,

now there is no price on the cure

for your sadness.
