Overheard at Table 3: Poems as a Means of Monetary Exchange

So a friend and I were talking about using poetry as a means of monetary exchange, and I recall having written a draft proposal for that a few years ago.  After rummaging around the half-crumpled pages in my scattered brain, and finding nothing, I've decided to re-write it again, here:

Proposal for Use of Poetic Forms as a Means of Monetary Exchange!

A Couplet for a loaf of bread or a cup of coffee

A Haiku for a few bags of groceries

A Limerick for a utility bill

A Villanelle for a medical procedure

A Sonnet to buy a car

An Epic in lieu of a mortgage
