"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
