The Economy (poem)

Money, I’ve none,

a few dollars, bah humbug,

some more cents,

their shiny, metallic nonsense!

If I had a billion dollars,

if I won it, let’s say,

what would I do, it’s hard to tell,

Shares? Investments? Sell, sell sell!?

I hate money,

I hate it with anger,

I hate it’s ways,

it’s sharp corners and tricky angles.

Money turns humans into robotic wankers!

the miserable millionaires and the criminal bankers!

I say, “do away with money tomorrow”

I need some now though, might hafta borrow!

I cannot wait until the apocalypse comes,

when money becomes useless,

more useless than moldy old brushes!

no more young kids, with outrageous trust funds!

We need money, we’re told.

But do we really, do.we.real.E?

What if we all made a stand together?

We could say, “money! Fuck off! For now and forever!”

Honestly, if enough people said NO to money,

the world would have to change, it would HAVE to change!

Most of the money in the world is owned by a very few people,

we refuse their tender, and they’ll be rendered useless!

Stand up people! Say NO to money!

It doesn’t make you happy, that’s a fact!

Money is sour and bitter, not like honey!

Happiness is a kitten, money’s a Pterodactyl!

Answer me this,

do you like money, the concept?

Answer it honestly, answer it true,

That’s my poem, doo bee doo doo!

    Maybe we should barter but what with? People don’t farm or do things for themselves any more. So I guess we are stuck with it. Loved the poem though!
