Earthly Treasures

Beauty and glimmer,
The man collects and stores
Decorating to his heart’s delight.

Like a magpie he’s attracted by things,
Beautiful things,
Elegant things to fill his walls and tables,
Shiny things to clean and display.
Neat things, new things, antique things,
Precious things to fill his home.

To the man he’s building a castle,
Unknowingly,
He decorates his tomb.
