    Hi Marlon! I really enjoyed reading this poem of yours, packed with unique metaphors--- your message here rings clear and loud-- one of the stanzas that truly jumped out at me was the one with folding God in your pocket. A very worthy read, Marlon! Thank you for this!

    This is a freaking fantastic metaphoric swipe at the absurd nonsense we've been spoon fed to believe..."In moola we trust" ... I guess not. Damn straight poetry :)

    Even the title here is hot -- but we know if it wasn't for the censorship, "Sh!t" fits the bill(<----pun intended). This is a very heavy piece that is right down your alley. Just the penny/Lincoln part stands on its own merit. And the 'God folded in your pocket' stanza = Yes! This should definitely be spoken out-loud with a brooding rumbling in the backward. Good on ya, Doctor Linton Bradley, you are on a roll again.
