Deciept



Soldiers of fortune marching with utmost of haste,

Obedience is instilled from every which way,

Don't step out of line, better straighten that mind,

For difference is to discipline of every kind,


Progress is unhalting, time appears daunting,

Rhythmically waltzing, to a tune that is haunting,


Sinners and losers, share prospects with clueless,

Till days after days, make them one with the useless,


Expendable pawns in a persistent game,

Bred and coddled for dogs to make their claim,

Intelligence applied for capital to yield coin,

Rapture and cash are forced to be adjoined,


Progress is unhalting, time appears daunting,

Rhythmically waltzing, to a tune that is haunting,


Sinners and losers, share prospects with clueless,

Till days after days, make them one with the useless.

Better settle, it is best not to meddle,

With greedy, and gluttonous, intentions,


Bottle hell, it is best not to expel,

Your greedy, and gluttonous, prospections,


Increase your cash, it is best not to be brash,

Entrap, greedy, and gluttonous, diseptions.

Hallelujah!

 

 

.

Like a sermon on a few of the worst ills  (7 sins) of the world - each one could be a poem :S

 

Gluttony

.

The inability to stop consuming

art and food and cars and money

space and neighbor's newspaper.

Fat with a head full of dreams

actualized at the expense of us

or the trampling of the wheat

to get to the full and ripe

grape arbor.

.

Can not fill up the belly or

the bank account, or any empty

space that should be bursting

with the bulk of your collection

plate.
