POETIC DEBATE ON MONEY
We have six logics:
rock, fire, wind, water, heaven and earth.
They tell us how to think and act.
Money is good.
Because it can measure value.
In terms of what can buy.
Food, clothes and shelter.
But you can't buy love, trust and friend.
Oh, yes, you can. You can buy sex.
But not love.
Yes. You could. Nothing you can't buy, is there?
Money is a means of exchange.
Measure for measure, yes.
Why not? A store of value.
Why do you buy insurance? As a hedge, right?
It costs you money, right?
See? Money's everything in this day and age.
I doubt it.
But that's the way it is.
Well, that's not the way it should be.
