Love=Gold

All that glitters is not gold

Only gold is gold

No matter whether 10, 14, 18, or 24 Karat

Even if white, it is still gold

When I wear gold

I look like King Louis XIV, and

I feel like his boss

Once you have gold, you want to hold it tightly

WRONG!

Gold needs room to breathe

Gold may be metal, but it is a soft one

If squeezed, gold will bend out of shape

Now you've made a mistake and bent it

Thankfully, gold can be reshaped

That  is a timely and costly process, though

Worse yet, what will you wear in the meantime?

You start thinking about glittery stuff

WRONG, AGAIN!

That will leave marks on you

Yes, It is cheap, but

It is cheap

Dealing without real gold is an S.O.B.

When you get it back, though,

the gold's shine is twice as bright.

Only real gold with ponies is more valuable

Yes, Mark, much truth to this, and it's good that you see that. I like the format you used for this, it is blunt and yet the images are strong and clear. Nice job! Great pic, too.

SO TRUE AND UNIQUELY PRESENTED...THAT OLD CLICHE' RINGS TRUE EVEN WHEN LOOKED AT IN A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE, THROUGH A WELL DONE METRAPHORIC WORK AND...YES, IN SOME CASES IT CAN WORK BETTER WITH PONIES WHO HAVE NOT YET BEEN 'BROKEN'. GOOD WORK AND ENJOYED. THANKS FOR SHARING AND GOD BLESS. LOVE, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
