Fandango’s FOWC today is property.  I asked myself when in history did property become owned and how did it come about.  Even today, many cultures do not believe in property ownership.  Today’s offering is a cinquain form.

From revered to enslaved

Her giving spirit is distressed

      1. It’s very difficult, more so in the 20th / 21st century capitalism has really killed the dream of a world without ownership. The open market makes the love of things as valid as the love of people, which frightens me to be honest.
