Money clinks, crinkles and fans
Whether real or counterfeit
10% or all of it
Money is sight, touch and sound
Money is scarce, not enough
to go around.
Believe that? Here’s another:
Money won’t help our brothers
It’s worthless in a shipwreck
when there’s not enough water
to drink, but plenty to sink—
Look all around.
Invisible value lives
underneath: hands that make beds
eyes and voices that read lines
ears that listen, arms that open
and trade that could yet be best—
For my prompt Poets United Midweek Motif ~ Money
