The World Is Made of Money

Know your history:


Thomas Jefferson

invented the modern plow

along with the United States


A social man,

a friend to Freedom.

He kept his slaves


secreted behind doors

designed, by him, to pivot

with barely a whisper:


empty walnut shelves

suddenly filled with wine,

sweetmeats, cheeses


as though by magic. The brown arms,

hands and minds enabling

this chicanery


walking from slave quarters

to kitchens in head-high trenches

Jefferson himself designed to hide his niggers


And as Enoch in the Bible

He lay with his slaves

adding slightly to the list of begats


Public opinion never wavered

in the face of Jeffersonian genius

then and now


the world is made of money
