Ponzi Scheme

Ponzi Scheme

They say that you are struggling to be what you purport.
Meanwhille, your flame is flickering. You’ve little real support.
Although you gave appearance of being strong and wise,

you were only surreptitious—a serpent in disguise.
You claimed to be clairvoyant, so why didn’t you foresee
the crumbling of the pyramid of your prosperity? 

Prompt words today are flickering, clairvoyant, surreptitious, purport and struggle.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
