money madders - an art work by T Newfields

money madders

money is a language
wuth a streinge vucabulary
as coins click 'n computer screams
kalculate digital blips
the weirdest thangs becum possible
if cents muttar more thyn sanse.

money is a kuntrulled substance
whach makes people believe
averything haz a prace tag
which kun be exchanged in a blink.

muney is a manure
which works best whun well-spread
'n exposed ta sunlight
rathur than rottin' in bank vaults
az za mutant blight

Kun we transcend owa fiscal lust
'n accept udders with kompassion 'n trust?
Err must we kalculate every action we undertake
as if money were the sole yardstick
koncernin' whad ta destroy err kreate?
Terri: Most adults don't understand how money works. They lack financial intelligence.
Ted: I understand how capitalism works, but am not sure it's intelligent in the long run.
Kris: To me, money is a neutral commodity – it all depends on how you use it.
Tim: Hogwash! Nothing in this world is "neutral".
