A dollar

A dollar is a weight.
A dollar is a measure.
Clever they conflate,
Paper as our treasure.

A dollar is a weight.
A bill’s a bill of credit.
The bankers will inflate,
Their promise as our debit.

A dollar is a weight,
Our debts we now exchange.
United in our states,
Our currency estranged.
