Your monetary support of Writeropolis Industries is much appreciated. Anything you pop into my tip jar goes straight back into the growth of the network. If you do, you may be name-dropped in an episode of Raconteuse Radio!

Playing around with visual poetry today. Enjoy!

Trade

we go marching
one by one
into this world 
of man's creation 
who demands that we
trade our time 
for cash
but not to
support our 
hopes, dreams
no, no
don't take the pennies from him, he earned it, not you
simply by being on top

that house you dream of
sits waiting for capital
a mortgage
so you can say
it's yours
but you're drowning
under paper
from trees
that died
to murder
you
all
over
again.
