Written for a challenge: write a six word story with a title of something prominent in the world hidden in the story. I hid the word "money."

Wow. Impressed , i initially clicked on this poem for its interestng and unique name, and im not gonna lie i was dissapointed to see such few words on the page.

But then i read them, i tend to hate one sentance poetry but this sentance is a story on its own, it speaks volumes. Intellegently though out.

For me, this sentence didn't make sense. I kept re-reading it to try and understand it but no matter where I paused it didn't make any more sense than before. I get the meaning, there's nothing wrong with that, it's a wonderful meaning and I love how you expressed it; but the sentence just didn't work for me. It was almost just like a string of words put together with the necessary words inbetween cut out (I understand though how it can be so hard to write a six word story and I'm impressed that you could). But then, it's probably just me.
So, I'm impressed that you could say something so, in such few words, but to me the sentence didn't make sense. Oh and I really like what you named this.

interesting challenge -- nice job hiding money in there. Not sure if this counts as a poem or a fortune cookie though.

Wow. How did you say sOoo much with only 6 words?? Amazing. And what truth lies behind those words too. The number of conformists, especially around me, are exponentially high. Makes me feel so out of place being the only one who questions societal expectations & norms. While they run through their life blind, Im standing still with open eyes.

Very clever and insightful. Money inspires so much - evil and good and indifference.

That is very inciteful!

Wow you've truly grasped such meaning behind few words in such a flowing saying. Well done it made thought as I had to read it twice thinking of it with its deep words. Nice and simple.
