Serf Bazaar [Today's News Poem, September 13, 2010}

Serf Bazaar [Today's News Poem, September 13, 2010}

Beads of trading glass on hempen vines,
Crystal bowls and servant boys or girls...
Full of choices, everything's expense.

Come beyond the dollar curtain; don
Uniform and sweep the floors—and take
One of many pleasures. Leave the rest.

Nothing here's forbidden; simply ruled.
Even time is costly: waste not, want
Less. If sleep is how you take it, go.

Horde your surplus. Keep your options safe.
Youth departs, but still we fantasize
Everything is possible expense.

“The student loan default rate continued to rise in fiscal year 2008, the latest period for which data is available, with default rates for students at for-profit colleges — already the highest — rising the fastest.”
– TAMAR LEWIN, The New York Times, September 13, 2010
