This week’s prompt: Write an ‘money’ poem
The Number Game
We dream of more zeroes
At the end of dismal funds;
Of the day digits can’t chain us
To a forced, cautious hesitancy
And a constant crippling uncertainty;
Days where numbers don’t matter
Nor can they label and divide us;
But while they still define us
We are tethered to the game
Where everyone’s struggle is the same.
