Just A Thought

the romance of money is an interesting plague
comes creeping into the thought pretending
to be life
like a viral video demanding attention
stealing joy seeking anyone who is
vulnerable, chasing rainbows through
clouds of soul killing hours given for
the exchange of some nothing but
without the green what a mean world
we dream the man pushing a grocery
cart with so much in it the wheels can’t
turn his home his life in a basket
hollywood the resting place for so
many drug crazed down and outers
the billboards approaching Vagas
say that one in five children are hungry
doesen’t vagas mean empty places
i chase jobs and a life too like a penny
from heaven or a bad penny the illussion
is such a good movie we collectively
offer human sacrifices on its altar
i think the projector needs to be broken
the real needs to come from a different director
like maybe most of us agree, but don’t
imagine another way, I quote Isaiah 55
“Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost.
Just a thought.
