He just moves, 
walks and smiles, 
goes about chores 
and many tasks,
he eats so well 
at such fine sites,
leads a handsome life, 
wears fine clothes, 
walks in great shoes, 
he is a god in bed, 
no doubt about that. 
But...do not make
the fatal mistake 
of thinking he cares... 
he cares for no one, 
he just performs well, 
he is a cardboard man. 
There are no feelings 
in that cold, icy heart, 
it only pumps blood. 
He is just a nice figure, 
a body to dream about, 
but do not think he cares, 
he does not, he never will, 
he is just a cardboard man.

The Psychic Cherry

Wow! I really like this. I'm guessing the man is rich because rich people usually doesn't care about anyone haha. But it's just my opinion. :)

You don't have to be rich to be a selfish person and /or a narcissist.Still,money gives you power and if you ate selfish it gets to your head.
Thanks for your review!

Very good, Lizzie!
I love the line “He leads a handsome life” especially.
The speaker assumes an emphatic omniscience in this piece, very authoritative and wisely observant as only experience can explain.
Weirdly, I have a vision of that interview in the opening of 50 Shades
