Expensive Mad Order

To impress the waitress at Cassandra's Restaurant
(where desperate protesters are eventually fed),
a crazy man is scoring a point about the difference between

agonizingly dwindling currency transparency
and foundering under the grander divergent turbulence
of a one-money slum government.

The smugly closed stores pull in aspirational civilians,
who looted them to steal some trash before it's chopped up.
He merely borrows the trash, in the trappings of a moral.

-- Glenn R. Frantz

In a tale of desperation, Allen and his cast are in control
Khouri carried 'Money' through some tough times
Protesters Clash With Police in Kenya and Loot Train
