Would you like a receipt?

Soiled Riches

 

Gas prices continue to climb,
Grades conveniently separated
Not by a penny, nor a nickel,
But by Roosevelt’s face,
On that very thin dime. 

 Global hostages in this game,
Offshore and foreign markets reap
Riches under their soil
While our politicians work the polls
This stunted economy
Continues to sleep.

Peace,

Papa
