    The love of money is the root of all evil. Yet one
    needs some of it to survive. Spend it wisely.

    There is so much to be said about money. One should learn to rule money, and not let money rule them. Enjoyed your forum on this pertinent subject. (Report) Reply

    This is a unique poem, with all the lines single worded and one word lyrically repeated to show its strength, use and abuse, and its necessity to all and sundry.
    Well done, my friend! (Report) Reply

    It's just a coin to barter with,
    a vessel that we argue with,
    a way to exchange services,
    a noose around our frames

    and if we called it chinnywinks
    or doublenooks or skinnyclicks
    the jingle jangle noise
    would be the same ;)

    Another good one, Howard (Report) Reply

    A great piece which shows the persistant movement and relationships with that dreadful stuff that we all must abide by...wouldn't it be grand if we could return to the old ways of growing and bartering and passing on crafts and skills.... a thought provoker tyvm karen (Report) Reply
