Greed In Moderation

Poem By Margaret Burlston

A successful man
Is indeed greedy
But this is his plan,
He's learned when to stop

This man can build skyscrapers
Steady foundations,
Pooling his neighbors,
Selflessness gets through to them

You too build towers
But yours are in green
You steal at those hours
They break into pieces

That same successful man
Adds them in his height
Maybe you ran
Too deep into longing

Others rely
On these towers built
You too could try
Rather than live

Off this greed
You've sown
