Gold fever is it a curse or an addiction
One has to learn without any restriction

To search and find this illusive bounty
One must dig and search every county

The trial sometimes leads to wealth
But most times is hidden and stealth

This fever is not for the faint of heart
You cannot give up before you start

This metal of yellow glint does lure many
Most all that are lured loose every penny

Those true to heart and who stay there course
Come back from denial not riding their horse

Arriving at the bank with a poke overflowing
Thankful for the strength their faces glowing

Remember if you get this fever curse or addiction
To stay on your course and to dig with conviction

Then you will not return body broken and frail
But a smile and full poke at the end of the trail
