An Affluent Seagull

In an abyss devoid of rules,

You’d find the ultimate chaos

What you’d find is no one’s fool,

What it is and will unfold,

Are: affluent seagulls.

Imagine the link

Between money

And the sphinx

It is strength and wisdom

But also cruel and deceit

Why does the bird maintain affluence?

And how does it crave the freedom?

Has the seagull lost its preference?

Or does it require a conference?

The affluent seagull must not fly

The affluent seagull must not spy

The affluent seagull must not buy

The affluent seagull must not lie

The affluent seagull can only cry

And hope that one day it would dry

To dry on the land that it could buy

But too seagull-y to ever try.
