Day 7 – NaPoWriMo – Money – “What has Worth?”


Who decides what has value or worth?

That you should have money, that I should not?

Who decides who is rich and who is poor?

They say it’s up to hard work but I’ve seen plenty,

Work their hands to the bone and come out with nothing.

Who decides what money is worth?

That the Canadian dollar was on par with the US dollar,

But now it’s twenty cents below.

Who decides the value of money?

Who decides who should have plenty and who should have little?

What is the value of a piece of paper?

A meal, a house, clothes on your back, a nice living room. a pet?

What kind of value does money have?

When what some pay for is trash but has great value.

While other’s pay for expensive art and feel that is of the greatest value.

What is money to our society when in the Great Depression they had suit cases full

But it had no worth at all.

When to the child five dollars is a huge amount.

But to the adult five dollars won’t even by lunch.

Who loves money?

Isn’t it  said: ” Money is the root of all evil.”

Or is that to cliche for a poem on what is valuable and worthful?

I like to have money and I don’t know how I’d do without out it.

But I tend to think the time I spend with people or a dog

Has far greater worth.

  1. I love these lines: “That the Canadian dollar was on par with the US dollar,

    But now it’s twenty cents below.”

    They make me think about the politics of currency, the value of human life. Love this poem!
