False prophet


It gives a ludicrous
sense of safety

It might buy you
a way out of chaos

Probably not
yet you strive 
to stack up earnings

It is your only goal
to accumulate 
worthless paper

Nothing backs money
it is only paper that
we keep grinding out

Once money was based
on the gold standard
always gold was sought

No more
paper money takes the floor
its all paper

I trade paper for services
I have a lot of paper
it is my commodity

  1. Thought provoking. So true that it is not backed by gold and is just paper.....
