I wonder. What if. What if.

What if the dollar collapses?

Would the world go up in ashes?

It could happen.

It's a fiat currency, backed by nothing.

Whats going to stop it? Hopefully something.

Backed by oil, and its rule on our life.

We get nothing but to toil and strife.

Yet we all keep working,

like good little sheep.

Then we leave this world, with nothing to keep.

So I ask you, what would you do?

If the dollar was worthless, and your taxes came due.

Then again, maybe that's what it will take,

For us to cast away, this horrible fake.

We are modern day slaves,

waking up in waves..

Money should no longer be our master.

So I ask you now, do you agree?

Or is this something only I see.

A vision of the future, with a little less greed.

A world less lonely, with no one in need.

This may sound like a joke,

You may think I'm a fool.

But all it would take, is ending money based rule.

I would say that the US has nothing to worry about as far as revenue. All they have to do is let a black covert technological marvel or two float up to the commercial surface to restore the economy. If they cornered the market on anti-grav transit or some energy system the cash would flow like a river. Wouldn't it. They say that whatever the military lets us in on, they are actually hundreds of years ahead of that.

I have to agree with your statement, although I would still rather see us move in a direction away from the path we are currently on.

Thank you.:-)

I just kind of played around with it until I was happy. As I posted elsewhere this is the first poem I can ever remember writing, so I was a bit proud. lol.

Well that is sure a great poem for your first go.

You should try and keep writing. Once you have written your first poem it seems to flow more easily as you start to write ... I've been writing poems since I was a wee lil girl. My mammy(grandma) got me reading poetry at a young age and I just love it.
