What is Money

What is money?

Time is money?
No, Gold is REAL money?!
But what about legal tender something or other…
Don’t get me started on bitcoin?

Show me the money!
Ha, Lets get real, honey
In fact, the points don’t matter…
A made up thing we mint into reality

Isn’t it funny
How “taxpayer money”
Is needed to pay for all the things…
That citizens actually want, but not bank bailouts or the military

I have lots of thoughts involving the nature of money, the power of the public purse, etcetera these days. I want to sort those out more later, but in the meantime this poem kind of came to me while I was attempting to mind map out some stuff.
