I count words like some count money
and weigh them – carefully – before I write.
I do not rummage in bargain bins –
for quality of words outweigh quantity.
It will be a sad day, indeed,
when human greed for the mighty dollar
outweighs the joy of words and learning.
It could be argued that that day’s already come, I suppose… Anyway, this is an attempt at combining the NaPoWriMo 2015 official (but optional) prompt for Day 7, which is to write about money, with the Facebook NaPoWriMo 2015 (optional) prompt for Day 7, which is to write a poem of seven lines consisting of seven words each. Not sure if it worked, but as I have a monster cold and my head’s not really working I’m glad I got anything done… One week down, 23 days to go.
