Counting Crows

Sometimes money isn’t enough,

the wheat rejects the chaff

 

Wealth attained by winnowing gain,

the scarecrow only laughs

 

Sometimes money isn’t enough,

the numbers rise and fall

 

Interest accrues­ as attrition renews

—the richest count forestalled

 

(Valley Forge: November, 2020)
