"Greedy Little Men"

Greedy Little Men
            Like slithering serpents in the Garden of Eden
                        twisting the world with their lines
                        constricting around our minds
                        sucking us dry of laughter, warmth, desire, love
                        biting with the sharpened fangs of need
                        poisoning the world with their avarice
                                    Greedy Little Men

Copyright 1997 Elizabeth Abrams Chapman

The more things change, the more they stay the same. This poem, written in response to the political climate fourteen years ago, still applies to today's world.

"Goblin" by David Chapman
