Photosynthesis - A Spontaneous Rondeau

If I declared that sun and rain
was all I needed to maintain
my bottom line, you would be sure
that I had finally gone insane.

Multiple incomes; sweat and strain;
the stoicism to abstain:
by these great lengths, I might secure
some photosynthesis.

Another fellow may complain
that even as his treasure wanes,
collectors gather at the door,
take what he has, and cry for more.
I only wish I could attain
to photosynthesis.
