Dear Humans,

I am the scariest thing society has ever seen!

I am the greenback, well, the dollar I mean.

I was created out of thin air.

I’ve been known to create much despair.

My mother is the Federal Reserve,

The corporatocracy she serves.

She is a private bank, not federal whatsoever.

Copulation between the two is the greatest financial crime ever.
 

I was born in debt.

Let’s not forget

that for every time I am produced,

it’s at interest; financial slavery it has induced.

It’s a system of self-generating debt.

For the people, it’s a threat.

The Federal Income the people have to pay,

actually goes to the interest of the Federal Debt today!

The rest of my family — the banking cartels,

are the criminals who put people in financial cells.

They control the money supply

and — surprisingly — the people comply.
 

They have a monopoly on the production of legal tender.

Blindfolds are placed on the citizens, naysayers called offenders.

Banks aren’t regulated any longer,

thus they invent their own policy, making them stronger.
 

Before, I used to be printed

based on how much gold was minted.

Now, I’m backed by nothing, except faith in a declining system; a zero, zilch, nada.

Tough to beat, the machine is protected by the corporate armada.
 

I am only important in this society,

because resources are needed, otherwise, physical and emotional anxiety.

Without me,

one could not survive against life’s army.

Soldiers of torment,

who withhold essential supplies and fragment

the social order;

leaving a few in prosperity and most in impoverished smolder.
 

But in reality, I am inconsequential.

Resources, abundance, love, sustainability: essential.

I am used in all countries

and yet I can’t grow on trees.

I cannot be eaten as a meal.

I provide no shelter, no nutrition, nor can I heal.

I dictate the lives of humanity.

A few have plenty while most wallets are empty.

So long as I exist,

the problems of the world will persist:

poverty, war, greed, famine, and division.

The people tossed out like cut foreskins; economic circumcision. 

 

I hope people never ask themselves what is truly indispensable.

For if they knew the answer, they’d no longer be insensible.

They will come to realize that resources are needed.

And that they’ve been cheated.

Taught to focus on intangible things,

like corporate images, brands, and other nothings;

instead of focusing on natural resources that satisfy human wants and needs.

An intelligent management of the earth’s resources needs to proceed.
 

Until the masses wake up, I doubt that’d ever transpire

because their thoughts are guided by the corporate empire.

They are kept shallow.

Black Friday they will follow.

Taught to consume and consume some more,

environmental concerns they ignore.

My greatest enemy is a resource based economy.

I wouldn’t be needed and it would grant personal autonomy.

For the notion of money would be in the distant past.

Without me, pain, suffering, and misery couldn’t last.


Sincerely,

                    Money

    • No evil should be necessary. There is always a way. As of now, yes we “need” it but that is why we need to transition into a resource based economy.

  1. Brilliant sway from the music we had been accustomed to! A Simple yet clever twist to clarifify a tale. The biggest of all fairy tale-MONEY!…
    I am sharing this pls, thank you!
    I agree with you Gino, No evil is necessary. None, Zero, Zilch… I think,
    we must simply be determined to unfasten our “seatbelts” and jump into that nothingness which perhaps may very well be THE “nirvana of nothingness” which we could never even quite imagine how to go about!
    Leaping wildly and fearlessly into that galaxy of nothingness altogether ,
    is to me is beyond escaping from our evil captors-Money.
    We are not escaping from the devil (Money) or from the “idols that serve him hungrily. We are taking them for a joy ride with us!
    And when we get to our final destination, it should be clear to them already that WE are no longer minding any of their signs and signals, designed to control.
    By then they would truly be realized into accepting that alas! the women of the world have found out that Cinderella, Snow White, (even Barbie!) belong to Lalaland.
    Oh! And Pinocchio has “grown Up”!
    He too has uncovered his own pandora’s box!
    And he has unlocked the gates of Money Kingdom
    freeing every prisoner out of their money box!
    All hell has broken loose, all hell where fairy tales were mold had been loose.;
    And like all other fairy tales which over and over we have we been told,
    this one ends with one generic note-…
    that goes,

    …And they all lived happily ever after…

    Somewhere between the devil and the deep blue seas,
    All the male and female worshippers of Black Hole aka Dirty Loin, i mean COIN… vanished into their own bubble and burst into space one by one, rythmically bursting into tiny flame sparkles… Too bad they had been too greedy too soon and had been generously investing charity funds in the in-genius advancement of science and technology specialized in world de-population ; puppeteering the profiteering, hypocritical disciples of Hippocrates into collecting species from their very own disneylands called earth,upon earth, where, strangely so, THE parallel reality what would have been the fantasies of reality. (where getting home without a dripping box of melted ice cream is the highest wisdom one can push to achieve) existed ( and where its inhabitants about to make an exit) Ah! Too bad how the massive, scientific exploitations had de-activated, slowed/dumbed down or shut out completely, into useless, imbeciled slaves with wasted and busted central intelligence nerves of beyond human technological repair. They could have still been used up to favor their racketeers outer space…

    Argh! (The writer is falling between sleep and slumber. Enjoy making sense of the tale inspired by MONEY, the poem. )
    The End

    P.S. Hey we could seriously all collaborate to patch our thoughts into creating a back to basic fairy tale with a cunning twist inspired by the gods! We already are… 🙂

    • Do a book report on sneoome you find interesting or sneoome who has contributed to society in some way. For example, a US President, a Civil Rights Activist, a religious leader, or sneoome who has contributed to society in some other way. Try to pick somebody different, and don’t pick a celebrity because they’ve usually not done anything worthwhile.

      • First off enjoy your vacation and HAPPY BIRTHDAY GINO! I am alayws listening to audiobooks truly and I would love it if you’d make yours available through iTunes something I would surely pick up and listen to. Miss you and wish you all both the best!

    • That was amazing!! Sorry for the late response I just saw this. Great points, and thank you for taking me on a voyage with your words. Yes together we can all collaborate to rid this world of its backwards thinking and move forward into peace, love, and unity, ideals that aren’t idealistic but possible and sane.

    • Of course within THIS system. My argument is that we don’t have to live in a system that uses money as an exhange for resources. We could transition into a resource based economy and rid ourselves of this silly little thing we call money.
