Hillary Clinton Not Well Off AT 50 Million--Hard Choices On What To Buy With So Little Money

The latest news flash is that Hillary Clinton is not truly well off
Makes you wonder how in touch she is, makes you want to scoff
50 million dollars means to her that the Clintons are barely above the poverty line
Bill makes more in a half hour speech that many workers make in a year
An 8 million advance on Hard Choices brings no mere mortal sympathies, no tears
Chelsea is making 600k at NBC and producing little if any work
In the Clinton world, how can the dead broke image really lurk?
As an author whose works were most likely ghost written
Never begrudge her for the advance as the writing bug many of us mortals were smitten
Never a former President’s speaking fees begrudge or complain
But to not be well off at 50 million when mere mortals are in real pain
Indicates to this poet that she is really out of touch with those she wants to rule
As the book tour progresses maybe a thinner skin than Obama with much less personality tools
Hard Choices may be a great title but for a potential reader the choice can be made with ease
No need to buy her retelling of a record at Secretary of State so her failures she can appease
