A delightful poem that truly rhymes. Well, this indeed must be a figment of your imagination. I certainly enjoyed your conjuring scheme and the ending was perfect.

Excellent. Sometimes we have to lose something before we appreciate its value. To be with a loved one outweighs money. Very good story telling and rhyming in this piece. Marilyn

I love the twist in this. Nice setup in stanza one with the speaker putting a value on the treasures bought throughout the marriage. Much attention to her physical reaction and to hubby's.
Lesson is this: what good is money with nowhere to go and noone to share it with?

A very cute story of someone who loves money for than life its self.
Your poem was charming with all the bells and whistles in Rhyme and Rhythm and Fun.
Thanks for sharing.

Ah! A wonderful humorous look at greed. "Be careful what you wish for" also comes to mind. Your description of this woman is easy to picture in my mind. Well done again!

Hi RSHIPP,
Oh my! This is a great story of dishonesty in a marriage. To have it all and then lose it because of greed is so sad. The love of money is the root of all evil. Yes, marriage is supposed to be a team. Through thick is thin is the way is what marriage is about. I love how you used the lamp to wish for money and more money. The husband was pissed (You're dishonest. Deceitful. You treacherous hiss.) To lose it all for money can be a lonely world. There is a lesson in your story. Be content in what you have. You did a good job with the rhyming of your words. No errors I saw. Good job!! Happy writing:-)

This work has reached the exceptional level
Not only was your poetry entertaining, but rather insightful as well. You told a story, that takes the reader on a journey and tells not only a warning in the end, but wisdom. Seek after the right things, or things might not always play out the way you wanted them to. Well done ... very well done.

Wow amazing poem and I'm so sorry that I'm out of six stars. I like this parody of the Jinnie from the lamp. Your conclusion is so ironic feeling abandoned on a money trash. Thank you for sharing and good luck with the contest.

This was really fun to read and kept me going with delight. Money is the root of all evil in most cases. I liked the rhyme and rhythm particular and the story itself. Nice work.
