Poetry – Greed


Greed is the killer –

Divvying it up

For profit.

Religion the sop –

Faces in the shit

For prophet.

Sport the distraction –

Trying it on

For pro-fit.

Nature the loser –

No longer


Opher 18.9.2016


This modern world is not a pleasant place to have sweet thoughts – not while there are people around.

Everything is an opportunity for profit.

There are 8 billion people to exploit.

They would (and are) selling the planet.

To distract us from this game, they use religion, TV, sport and alcohol.

Greed, escalation, progress and profit. It is killing us. It is killing everything. Greed is the killer.
