Pretend They’re Not There

Ben Franklins, Lincolns

U. S. Grants–if you were lucky

They were never there when needed

Green, wrinkled paper–free

Plentiful if you imagined their presence

Greed, envy, pride, lust

The rest of the deadly sins

Imaginary fortunes didn’t care

If you pretended they were there
