Penny Poem: Cents

I think an economy makes ¢s.

We want money. Money makes ¢s

Economies work all around the idea of ¢s.

Economies, themselves, just make ¢s

Right?

Health care should cost money, it makes ¢s.

Education can’t be free, there’s no ¢s in that.

What’s important to us as a society is ¢s,

Isn’t it funny how Cents sounds like Sense?

Cents is the play on the sound that makes us think that

 

Cents,

 

Makes sense,

 

but when I think of real Sense,

the goal is for there to be no Cents,

Caused I sensed that cents divide us,

Our axiology is actually demanding action.

There should only be the way you spell it with an “S”.

 

 

 

 

 

It’s funny how we demand change and we get just that, Change.

It may only be the kind in your pocket but it’s change nonetheless

right?

 

 Real change isn’t dimes and quarters.

Real change exists outside of your pocket.

But we are convinced that Real change is just our ¢s

And we spend our ¢s and change on little things.

 

 

 

 

Life’s not free, we don’t live “free”

and we never have.

Living has always cost us, and it’s the great shame of human life.

this idea of being “Free”

and the resource wars that go unnoticed.

The privatization of Water

Food,

Education,

and Healthcare.

 

Freedom isn’t free,

Freedom requires resources like:

Military budgets and million dollar mansions,

Luxury cars, and military action. 

 

With price tags on your food and your water.

Freedom really isn’t free,

the way freedom ought to be.

 

 

Freedom should work on being Free.

and maybe Cents really doesn’t make Sense

and Change

it‘s not the kind in your pocket,

it’s the kind in your heart.
