by John Pillsbury
A dollar was a measurement- it measured silver and gold
Now it measures nothing- that's what i've been told
since it measures nothing where can it's value be?
Its value is an illusion in the minds of you and me
We all work ardently for a dollar worth nil
we work years and years- all of our own free will
we amass all these nothings- the IRS wants its share
some day the people will awake and see there's nothing there
