Canto LXIII

The money plant’s days a goner. I could help
by finding it a new pot so the roots
could stretch into the moistened soil and gulp

until the green returns. The point is moot.
There’s no room for it to grow in this flat,
and so I let it fade away and hate

myself a little for this callous act,
or should that be inaction? All I know
is that its namesake also runs to nought,

as markets crash like waves on rotten boughs.

    This is my first comment so I have a backlog of retrospective comments to make and a chance to enjoy reading the series to date.

    This canto is so pertinent to the news today and the word “inaction” just about sums it all up.

    Checking on google…do money plants have a white leaf type flower and big artist’s palette type leaves.
