How To Write About The Money God Like a Goblin

Found another post on a forum by the Goblin on a topic I know keeps my mind occupied as of late.

the goblin thanked everyone for reading or posting on here, though his mood was too pensive offer much in return, it was as if the goblin was once more back in the court of the moneygod being asked “…so goblin if you had one wish what would it be, name your price, I mean, you have a price don’t you, most people here do have at least something they want then…” smiled the knowing moneygod as he stretched out his open arms in a big wave around him across those endless lines of items on offer “…anything then goblin, you name your price and then I’ll name mine, it’s that simple…”, the goblin thought about it but then said “…no, I just want to be creative…”, “…ah another bloody fool who thinks happiness can’t be bought, simply you want to be “happy” then I take it, a happy little goblin in a happy life…” laughed the mocking moneygod sitting back in his chair now looking at the goblin, the goblin had to laugh at himself too “…I must be mad then, I don’t really want happiness either, I mean if you asked me to swap my past tears and my pain, all my sadness, anger, passion, the loves broken or otherwise, these long goodbyes of people and places going or gone, I wouldn’t swap them and I never will either, I am simply not cheap to their memory as those memories are all I have of me too, that’s all…” which was the point the casher told the goblin to put the groceries back into the cart because the people behind him in the queue were waiting, “…sorry I was somewhere else…” apologized the goblin as the supermarket reality mercilessly entrapped him once more in his dailylife
