Queen of Pentacles

Holy to some,
harlot to others;
revered by poets,
reviled by mothers.

You have your God-given talents
and attributes. She has hers.
Do not mock or belittle them.
She does not mock yours.
What men will pay, and pay well, for
is not to be mocked or belittled,
especially when the rent must be paid,
the wolf kept from the door.

Close the poets.
Hang up on your mothers.
Mammon is lord of this world
and no doubt all others.
