If you ask me for money…

… I will give you a ticket to the circus where the lions will tell jokes and laugh when you miss the popcorn intended for your mouth.

…I will give you a ride to the far side of the moon where angels will rub your feel and kiss the tips of your fingers.

… I will serve you a banquet of food with brie and homemade breads, wine with delicacies too much to eat but enough to box fore the passersby on the street whose stomachs still rumble.

… I will give you the information and wisdom I know,

with promises of what I will learn.
