Around the world, we print our money and this is what we use instead of gold, to trade/barter. This paper with its fancy drawings has caused wars and despair led by the people who have the most money. The victims are the members of the mass population. They fight the wars, live in violence, and then in utter poverty. Their houses catch on fire, the septic system stops working, and shit overflows from the houses of the 99%ers. Their dolls, animals, and homes are destroyed by the neglect of the landlord who is a living in an apartment in Trump Tower. He doesn’t hear the cries and screams of anguish. He just sits on his golden toilet and lives the American Dream.
