King Midas and His Golden Touch
"…Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win."
~ Stephan King
Have you ever asked for something even though you had plenty? Why do we always ask for more stuff? This is a deadly monster called greed and it lives inside of everyone. It's a never-satisfied monster that always wants to become wealthier, like King Midas. Greed can cause people to think of you very badly, just like I do towards King Midas. He's greedy, stupid and irresponsible, and a "blonde".
King Midas is a greedy bum: nothing more, nothing less. He was already rich and wealthy, but when he was granted a wish, he wanted everything that he ...view middle of the document...
I also thought that King Midas was a retarded idiot. Didn't he think before he made the wish? How did he think he would survive? His wish was to turn everything that he touched into gold; including his food. If he wasn't able to eat food, how did he plan to live? Also, why did he want all that money/gold anyways? Was he never going to use it? Probably not. He only looked on the bright side, but was unconscious of the dark. Sure, he'd have lots of money and gold, but he wouldn't be able to do anything with his friends of family, or else they'd die. Instead of wishing for gold and wealth, shouldn't he had wished for a happy family? Don't friends and family come before wealth? When he wished for gold instead of happiness with his family, doesn't that signify that he's not a responsible parent? His daughter suffered for his actions and died, but he didn't even bother rescuing her. Instead, he went to Dionsysus and asked how he could "escape the spell." Also, I hate King Midas because he had chosen wealth over his family. In my mind, great memories created as a family are worth 50 times more than one trillion dollars. Money can't buy what you want, and in this case, no amount of money will be able to buy King Midas' daughter back.
Personally, I think that he acts like the typical blonde; dumb, egoistic, rude. Not only is he retarded, careless and stupid, but when Dionsysus had tried to warn him about the wish, he didn't...
