Weight Exchange

As the mint men made money worse as a commodity in order to make it better as a medium of exchange
He was securing the bag by any means necessary, with her help

And they’d never let anyone take the southern bluefin tuna steak with kiwano dressing off their plates
They’d worked too many late nights to give up any share

Swore they’d feast to the death
Whatever it’d take to have Kuwaiti dinars everyday
And stay heavyweights on every gauge

The $100 bills – 22 pounds
€500 notes about 3
All off the books

A load of 1000 Swiss francs taped to her body
At the airport – Visa swipe
Signed off paperwork – left hand

No seigniorage or demurrage
