Jeez George, Lighten Up! April 29, 2022

Why the sly look Mr. Washington

on your dollar bill?

even the flash of a single tooth

might say Yeah, man!

and Abe Really?

that faraway face

on your five spot

is the best you could do?

you Mr.’s Hamilton and Jackson

how clueless you look on

those tens and twenties

I’m tickled to hold

Ulysses – I don’t think you

can say it any clearer

with your fifty-dollar photo

Do I look like I care?

You guys should be celebrating

your greenbacks with

a beaming smile or party face

at least a wink to say good on you!

ohhhh and Benjamin

smirky judgmental and

deeply disappointed


where’s your 100 dollars

of faith?

in what god

do you really do trust?
