Trading on a Full Moon

money may line a man’s pocket
but character constitutes the content of his docket

and just as a piece of silver is not a gold nugget
heartbreak cannot be felt by simply looking at a lover’s locket

that’s why like an eye without a socket
having resources with no mission or vision is attempting to take a spacecraft to the moon without a rocket
