    It's just a coin to barter with,
    a vessel that we argue with,
    a way to exchange services,
    a noose around our frames

    and if we called it chinnywinks
    or doublenooks or skinnyclicks
    the jingle jangle noise
    would be the same ;)

    Another good one, Howard

    Doesn't that seem to be the chant in the background of the world? MoneyMoneyMoney

    A great piece which shows the persistant movement and relationships with that dreadful stuff that we all must abide by...wouldn't it be grand if we could return to the old ways of growing and bartering and passing on crafts and skills.... a thought provoker tyvm karen

    well, its time to think of what we do to money and what money do to us.
    true that it is important (in the material world) , however, in terms of happiness it is temporary.

    I find the one-word per line verse kind of cute.
    But I appreciate the thought much more. I love it. Great write.

    There are more than 180 comments on this poem. Fantastic. Perhaps this shows how important money is. The poem is very well written in a very original style.

    I love money. It is a source of comfort (if we do not refuse to use it) . Recently, billionaires have started to give away half of their wealth. People are slowly becoming more rational about money. What's the difference anyhow, whether one has 3 billion or 1 billion in the bank?

    Sad things start to occur when people beome willingly the slave of money or the slave of anything else. Many people willingly enslave themselves also to money, power, position, religion. All these things are here for us and not: we are here for them.

    I really think that slowly our world is moving into a wisdom revolution. More and more people are seeing that kindness, honesty and all the other God-given values are far more important to happiness than anything else. Keeping that in mind, I keep loving money, position, power and religion. The more we honour the God given values, the more of these things seem to come our way. Once we start to ignore the God given values these things seem to start slipping out of our hands in a thousand ways.

    There is something magic about it. God works in mysterious ways.

    I love poems, that generate so many thoughts. Thanks a lot.
