A penny from heaven

28 Oct

Dear Mr Banker

I am writing this letter
to make something apparent that you seem not to know
It’s in regards to this delusion that you supposed
this fiction of debt that has been created by you
to now have the many owned by the few
for its ashes to ashes and dust to dust
not something from nothing
that’s based on your trust

so Mr banker I hope you realize
It’s nothing personal but I do despise
this deception you’ve played on all humankind
for our trust you betrayed us
to this crisis we’re in

but Mr banker I have a solution to propose
to settle this debt about this fiction owed
I have a penny that fell from the sky
it’s a penny from heaven to end this lie

this penny from heaven I pass on to you
Now let me tell you what this penny can do

it can end all the suffering the envy the hate
end all the wars and the fake debate
end all the hungry the homeless the lost
and for you Mr Banker there will be no cost

for all the debts shall be paid, paid in full
with this penny from heaven
which I now give to you

but Mr Banker you may think me absurd
for what I am suggesting is quite unheard
“this is meaningless, fictitious it has no value”
I’m sorry Mr Banker are you telling me that I cannot do, what you do

a fiction for a fiction sounds like a fair exchange to me
the only difference now being is we are no longer bonded to slavery

so I am sorry Mr Banker this payment stands
all the debts have been paid with what is now within your hand

but don’t be sad
for if your wondering what you have gained from our little transaction…

you have gained the world and everything in it
for if the truth be told
you are in a prison much the same as me
but not anymore Mr Banker
not any more
for where we stand now

is the land of the free ….. . . . .
