Accepting No GNAUNN Cents

What IF… Theodor Seuss Geisel were alive in 19320, and a “news” journalist covering HIS era’s “financial crisis”…

There’s a far off planet
there’s said that none from here
would have ever gone.
The richest in its Solar system
its ores so rare…
Hail, the planet GNAUNN!

The Alphas and the Betas, plus the Siri’s too
if you don’t have some Solar-Sail Time Ships
there’s no chance of WEALTH, (that you can reach.),
it’s a plan most won’t eschew

But, there were grumblings ’round the systems
that are like this planet EARTH
Berilliums with Plati-numbs, deep Kimberlites
just aren’t rare enough to build Light TRAVELS worth

The folks of GNAUNN were so prosperous
that Wills are never fought
And, “WAR”, kid, well now that’s a joke
these GNAUNNIUNS own a lot

(So) the Life forms from the other stars
get rich as they breathe in GNAUNNIUN “air”
Get home to show off to their friends
coughing ‘ILLIONS’, with some to spare

But, one fine day there came the time
when questions need be proved
Just what was that stuff oh so rare
that square milimetres
were worth a BILLION Louvres

Ministers Du Milky Way
all gathered near GNAUNN’S Star
and, from the exhalation of a CHIEF-CHIEF
was filled a Golden Jar

The Science, Doct-her Women
did their prying all too well
and found the rare stuff BOOGERS
of a Bug that eats and then just swells

Its cousins lived between the countless Stars
their diets overlooked
The CHIEF-CHIEFS laughed until they cried
but, in the TRUTH they shook

“Our worlds just cannot know this TRUTH
societies will fail
and, like a Billion years ago
we’ll have to ride a “Rail”

So, the CHIEF-CHIEFS had great meetings
drew up LIES to send back home
but, by the time they got there SCIENCE, quicker
covers, soon were very blown

Now, none will use the currency
nowhere you’ll see it spent
the signs across the UNIVERSE ALL read…
MANAGEMENT ACCEPTS NO GNAUNN CENTS

I believe that this could be used by our elected as well.
