Random Poem:

Value of the Dollar

This woman's face was weathered and worn
Eyes dull and deep in the skull
She asked my age
Hers was the same
Gave me her number
Said I should call her
Told her life story with lies
But this is no way to live
Can't decide what's sadder:  this
  or that I supported the shit
  and in this business
  the value of the dollar is
  shame and guilt
But I have to look
Wraps her tits around my skull
Its contents happily dull
