Hooked on a Freedom

once upon a time
people starved.
some still do.

not the middle class.
we’ve got hooks holding us
above the ghettos
and the gutters.

the cryptocurrency
of
debt.

thank god for that.
thank god we don’t
have the freedom to
starve.

 


 

 

Day 232’s three random prompt categories were, “Cryptocurrency,” “Written as a poem,” and, “Starving to death.”

A complicated issue.
