Polemic 07 Capital I S&M

Ass-lashed by the bottom line.
Sleepless, implacable, spiked with greed.
Everything profit and loss.
Zero sum, me or you.
Never enough.
There are some tasks that should not be businesses.
A doctor’s first question should be
“Where does it hurt? ”
Not
“How will you pay? ”
And there are joys deeper than gain
Held in bondage by this infernal line.
