Expectations

If an item has no value

it is the right of the people

to alter or abolish it

 

Change cannot be computed

as Life, Liberty, and the

pursuit of Happiness

 

retrogress into available-

for-sale securities labeled

a once in a lifetime gain

 

A history of repeated injuries

swooped in and swooped up

the disposal

 

of a significant component

unusual in nature but as we know

All men are created equal


*A hybrid poem composed of phrases from the Declaration of Independence and my accounting textbook
