I really do not get this one. It sounds like it means something, but it does not. To break it down logically, this is what it says:

A is like B.
If C, you don't need A.

I think it is like something that gets stuck to your shoe.

Well lessee.
Consumers are comprised of men and women. Debt is like air to consumers, jobs are like air to men & attention is like air to women. Therefore jobs and attention are to men & women as debt is to men and women. Therefore jobs and attention are equivalent to debt. Ergo, apropo of nothing, if you become wealthy you are in a rarified atmosphere, that is, an atmosphere lacking in air. QED

Best i can make of it.

This sounds poetic, but the logic is flawed.

The last line can never be completely true...at least as long as you are still breathing

You may not carry debt, but you still consume
Women always want attention to some degree or another, no matter how much money they have
Men will always have "jobs" of some sort...counting managing thier money if nothing else

Debt is like mouse to cat
fame is like authority to Britney Spears woman
Power is like Friend to big hat man

Comparing factor x,y,z, with consideration financial, is unnecessarily

How about this?

Or what about this.
