Greed

How much
money is obscene?
When ordinary folk
need to dream.
Price of medicine
rockets up
and welfare cheques
are not enough.
Wall Street bankers
on their planes
laugh at the little man
and his pains.
One billion
just will not do.
Multiply it
by five and two.
When it all comes
crashing down
who is left
to sow the ground.
Banker is gone
without a trace.
Just a new breed
in his place.
