    If
    I were
    a dollar bill
    I’d
    multiply

    I’d feed the hungry
    house the homeless
    Fill empty pockets and make negative accounts
    POSITIVE

    I’d
    pass myself
    out without a service charge

    here, here
    dollar dollar bills
    yall

    here, here
    Dollar dollar bills
    yall

    I’d
    plant trees
    in every community
    with me being the strange fruit to be
    picked and plucked at will whenever needed
    by young and old alike
    big
    and small
    short
    and tall

    I’d
    spend every
    cent of me to cut and remove the root
    that made me evil
    I’d
    make myself
    good and plenty (to all)

    so...

    there would be no need

    to
    steal
    or
    cheat for me
    to
    prostitute
    or stripe for me
    to
    lie
    or die for me
    to
    hoard
    or extort me
    to
    worship
    or kill for me

    ... NO MORE

    If
    I were
    a dollar bill I’d multiply
    I’d make change of me to bring change
    to all

    I truly enjoyed the journey Blastheme words carried me on.
    The thought of being a dollar bill and knowing you have the
    power to change anything and everything! The possibilities
    are endless! I sincerely thank Blastheme for inspiring this poem.

    Be Blessed!

    So’ja Man,

    see...

    If you were a dollar bill
    Who could multiply
    I’d be in line
    Screaming
    Gimme mine…gimme mine
    And you’d have to shortchange me
    Coz I’d want all of you

    JUST GREEDY LIKE THAT.:)
