Greed Poem – Collateral Damage

Greed Poem – Collateral Damage

This is my greed poem Collateral Damage. If you could subtract greed from the world, would it emerge anew?

Collateral Damage

Fear is greed's mother
the child slaying body and bone
on its quest for sure safety and solid satisfaction
now breathlessly escaping the true monsters

need
reliance
dependence
trust
vulnerability

In its wake, the child leaves behind dead
fragile
needy
trusting
dependent bones and bodies
a boiling planet / losing breed after kind

holding hands, mother and child
co-depend and endure

only love can bring them down
