Poverty and greed

Poverty and greed live as poles 

that attract and repel, spinning 

around each other, in an orbit that 

no one believes will ever end in 

this world that is sustained by money’s 

magnetic hold beyond life and death.

 

Greed is good, it is said with a smile

by those who can afford the humour,

and poverty is just the way it is or maybe

comes to those who know no better way.

 

Others say they don’t work hard enough, 

as if that is the reason they can’t get 

out of the orbit and move to the 

other pole where life is what it is

meant to be if one is blessed.

 

Poverty and greed!

 

Companions true.

Synergistic.

Magnetic.

 

Samsara.

End game.
