Paper.
Fold it, paint it,
call it green.
Stamp it, lick it,
collect it....
greed.

It's our money.
Controlling minds.
It's our "proof" of knowledge,
soaking time.

It's our budget,
line after line.
It's our lists,
our fits,
our "I'm doing fine!"

It's the mastermind
of calling the shots.
It's our propeller,
our "everything we've got."

Paper.
Paper.
I dip it in glue.
I fold it,
misuse it,
and recycle it new.

It doesn't hold me by strings.
it's not MY wedding ring.

I do many a things with paper.
But I know I'm its creator.

I need not proof to wave in the air.
I need not cliches to make 'em stare.

It's just paper,
dry pulp from a tree.
Does it really define
YOU from ME?

I appreciate your perspective, Tabitha. It is real and true in our society/world; sadly, it has always been thus. Love and best wishes,

money is not the root of all evil -- the greed within mankind is the villain -- money is merely symbolic of that greed -- may peace and love be always with you -- JMW

Excellant one Tab, this says so much about the validity of not judging people by their bottom line.
