Greed


A hotelier

Sitting empty

A customer

Needing shelter

The sky is dark

As the hotelier heart

A quick buck

Double the rate


The man

Looked around

Saw through

The greed

Shed tears

Mourning the loss

Of divinity


Oh ignorance,

How you work

Throwing a veil

Over the eyes

Gained so little

Lost so much


A solitary woman

Hard at work

The man

Hungry, thirsty and lost

The sun is blazing

As the woman’s love

Some food and water

Offered freely


The man looked around

Poverty abound

Seeing through

The sacrifice

Shed tears

Touching the feet

Of divinity
