Horace: The Miseries of the Wealthy

All Hate you,
your friends and neighbours,
girls and boys.
Yet you wonder,
setting money before all else,
that no-one offers you the love you’ve failed to earn!
While if you tried to win and keep the love of those kin
Nature gave you without any trouble on your part…

Horace, Book I, Satire I
