NaPoWriMo Day 8


What would it hurt
If we actually told them
How we wanted our money spent?
I don't mind the paying --
Deep down, that is --
I mind the spending
On wars I don't understand
And corporations I don't like
And fat cats that get continually fatter
At my expense.
So I would like to fill out
One more form
And tell them to spend my money on beauty,
Not decay;
And learning,
Not ignorance;
And narrowing our many differences,
Instead of creating vast seas of division.
