Response Poems

 

 

 

 

 

 

Suck your thumb and ponder

by Angela Keaton

 

equity mortgage bonds

have nothing today

money market easing

what guarantee creditors

 

finance liquidation default

hitting enforced printing

payments yield unsecured

loans always nothing

 

scrap world market

everyone’s quantative capital

exceeds overdraft problems

negative withdrawal credit

 

shares bankruptcy time

found crunch tumbled

administration shrank bailiffs

swamped money repossessed

 

nations stock values

knotty pension expense

none toxic warrant

balanced sales cut

 

waste limit closing

interest bundles down

over lost debt

bank junk void

 

poisoned buyer bust

spent savings – worth zero now

 

 

  

Money

by Tammara Or Slilat

 

has become the trickster, the fool,

the siren's song, the rule

by which everyone lives and everyone dies

from private jets to prison cells

from Aspen to Africa's starving hell. 

 

Money

 

is           energy             gone                bad

 

 

 

Untitled

by Rembrandt Clarke

 

people look at a gap
some will see an abyss
some a long day
some a challenge

but as for false prophecy
or cul-de-sac dreams
what worth can they have?
without people investing
their energy

time or
        passion

human desires
wants &
    needs

and weaknesses
        granting
freedom or
chaos
which is in turn
opportunity
