overstated

my last post might have overstated
how our house appears;
i’m showing you a picture to
alleviate your fears

that i’m an evil rich man
with the stink of corporate taint;
i live here in this hovel,
which i think makes me a saint

yes, i’m a poor rice farmer,
and my needs are very few;
just grain to feed the oxen
and a few more ‘likes’
will do
