War Poem Help
March 17, 2010 9:26pm CST
I've just learned from attending the Split This Rock Poetry Festival that Congress has spent $1 trillion (that's 12 zeros) on the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. As there are 6 billion human beings on the planet, that calculates out to $1,666.67 for every human being on Earth. My question is what would you do with $1,666.67? I'm going to turn your answers into a poem. Please don't worry about phrasing. That's my job. Thank you very much.

well,. lets see. id probably have money to send my old laptop to daughter in florida, then,pay my son another 100. on the computer he got me on his credit card, go to dinner, then buy a few clothes for summer. as all mine are to small now that ive gained so much weight, and they are so old they are thin and ragged. luckily, i have 1 old friend here thats lost weight and is bringing over some of her things that might fit me now and shes one that always buys lots of new expensive clothes.
