Hold and Fold

Maybe,
those that fully believe in money
as a measure of life and guiding rule
will call me naive in complaining
and will call alternate measures idealistic.

Maybe,
but this is always the response
when you speak against the status quo.
The temporary moment in history these things inhabit
always seems like forever to the adherents
but it never is, all times are brief.
New measures will rise and new rules will be
simple second nature to future
brief generations.

I simply raise my voice to say that I am ready
for money to fall back to a functional role
and leave measures and rules
to a more human
quantification
of quality.
