Rich Wi$dom (Three Little Pigs)

Once upon a time

A group of pigs lived on the same street

They were friends and despised the rich

They saw their neighbor get it in a cinch

 

He had the cash and hid quite a large stash

In a safe 

Somewhere inside his palace

The pigs were greedy and wanted to "share" his wealth

Having been raised with Robin the Hoodlum in mind

 

They knew it would be tough

Because he was so gruff

Plus he was a wolf

 

Everyone knew they ate pigs 

And had a huge mouth

They would take a slice 

And add some spice

 

The pigs said "Screw it!"

They dreamed of larger things 

And the large bling

Showing off to the world 

 

The night they cracked the windows

They heard it shatter

It was all a clatter

The place was for kings

Gold everything

Money was everywhere in the furniture, the TV etc. 

 

The thing that was not filled with money were the photographs they saw

A piece of history and the makings of real dreams

The road it took for the wolf to get there 

He did not steal the cash or inherit it from his family

He worked hard and grinded through the tough times

And at one time waited in the unemployment line

 

The passion he developed living in a small house

When he was just a pup 

His parents worked their bones just to get him to say "Ruff" 

They wanted him to see

That being envious and the same 

Would not get you through life

And would merely make you bitter

 

"Son, if you want to be successful, you have to know that you will make it"

It was told to him each and every day

The wolf knew he would get to the top one day

He devoted his life to helping his dream 

But not only that but giving to the needy 

The poor, the hungry, the homeless and the seedy

 

The pigs knew they made a mistake

They couldn't take the money from a man who earned it

He worked through his own passion to get here

Getting through the mountains in his way

They left a note saying sorry but also good luck

To the future

To where it could go

 

The next morning the pigs woke up 

To a size of cash 

The wolf had left it

 

"Reach for the stars"

'Then give it to others"

Signed the Wolf
