Hello welcome to my Sims 4 story blog. This entry is for the monthly Simlit story challenge/contest. It is in the form of a short story/poem. Thanks for reading and please check a few notes at the end.
I watch them every day.
The way they rush about,
How they scream and how they shout.
I observe their greed in full display.
Their bellies they fill and stuff,
Their wallets never thick enough.
I’ve seen them hand out their pay.
Always in a hurry to get the next big thing,
Thinking this happiness will bring.
I notice their wasteful way.
How they throw away old dreams,
Turning desires into new schemes.
I discern the god they obey.
Material things become their lord,
As many things they start to hoard.
I behold them as they say,
“Look at that old fool watching us!”
Turning their noses up in disgust.
I hold my head up high as I walk away.
Their words meaningless and will not break my cool,
Because at the end of the day, I know who truly plays the fool.
Thank you for reading my poem/short story. As I stated at the beginning, this was for a challenge/contest. There will be voting for a winner but to vote you must read the other entries so that you have a good idea of who deserves the top vote. Voting will take place after the contest is closed on the 30th of April. You do not have to vote, but I would be very honored if you chose to do so. I am sure the other contestants would be too. Thank you again and as always, Happy Simming!
