He thought – why not just trade it all in
Nationality, identity, family, society
And like Tom Bayer the financier
Move to some island that’s not a dependency of a major foreign power
And there settle in
Start building and free dealing

Is it not easier just acquiescing and complying?
Is freedom even attainable in a society based ecosystem?
Is true freedom not the death of all dependency?
Meaning the idea could be nothing more than just a fancy
And humanity inherently has a need for belonging
in financial markets
is a portent
of pecuniary failure
