come to me, my name is greed

I’m here to give you what you need

I am as old as time itself

and doing pretty well for myself

 

stay close to me

my work is sly

I’ll teach to manipulate

I’ll teach you how to lie

 

to get what you want

using people is fine

your needs should come first

keep those people in line

 

I am greed, I’m loved by many

even those who haven’t a penny

presidents and peasants too

they worship me, and so will you

 

my influence in so profound

my reasons are so keenly sound

who cares what lives you leave in tatters

your success is all that matters

 

so come to me, my name is greed

I am that malignant seed

which spawns man’s inhumanity to man

 

rose

Themes range from poverty to the ephemeral beauty of a sun-dappled pond, settings from post-Katrina New Orleans, a freshman dorm at a Missouri college, a sleet-slick city street th..
