"Free Love"


Why are you charging me money for talking?
Why are you charging me money for dressing up?
I mean, why are you charging me money for writing an ordinary story?
Since when have people been charging me money for everyday, social behavior?
Can't we get along without a price tag?
How come you're charging me money for love, romance, and embrace?
Does marriage have to involve every single dime and quarter from me?
Your necklace looks pretty, right?May I charge you with my words?
But how can people engage in normal activity and expect the world to cave in with jewels?
Am I some kind of ATM with a cash transfer on politics?
It isn't rocket science, right? 
Chew slowly?For what?
I'm just talking.
I'm just dressing up.
I'm just writing an ordinary story.
Since when have I been charging people money for everyday, social behavior?
I believe we can get along without a price tag.
Look, I'm not charging you money for love, romance, and embrace.
Marriage doesn't have to involve every single dime and quarter from you.
You're not even attractive!
My tie looks pretty, right?May I refund you with my words?
So many people these days engage in normal activity and expect the world to cave in with jewels.
Freedom of speech in this case includes vain repetitions: money, money, money.
I'm not some kind of ATM with a cash transfer on politics.
It's rocket science, isn't it?
Chew slowly.Whatever.

I liked the structure. I like the moved around repetition, if that makes any sense.
