Greed

Greed

How much equity lies in your equities,
How many shares do you share,
How much stock do you take of your stock,
Could anyone claim that you care?

Do you think of the mass as your masses amass,
Counting the money you're worth,
Clutching your pass into platinum-class;
What about poor planet earth?

The waiter pours more of the vintage champagne
As you raise a glass to the poor;
Does your need for greed supersede everything,
Are workers a class to ignore?

When you lie in your shroud and you head for the clouds,
Your money is not worth a jot.
That final hour isn't money or power,
You can't take it with you, you clot!

Breath Taking

Earth,
a wonderful,
life-giving,
breathtaking
coalescence of space dust.

Briefly inhabited,
plundered
and abused
by the human race,
before they were
choked to extinction
by their own
grasping, gasping
breathtaking
complacency.

Gone now,
nothing left.
No life,
simply peace.
An opportunity
to pause,
reflect,
to take a breath,
breathe fresh life,
to start again.
Dauphy:  I do worry about our planet.
Hobbo:  Me too, mate.
Dauphy:  It won't affect us though, will it?
Hobbo:  It already is, and it will get worse for our children and grandchildren.
Dauphy: And puppies!
Hobbo:  Yes Dauphy, and all those generations of creatures yet to be born...
Dauphy:  It makes me sad.
Hobbo:  Do you want a biscuit?
Dauphy:  Go on then...

Supersize me

A carnivorous restaurant founder
Invented the meat seven pounder
With mayonnaise spread
Twixt two loaves of bread
Small wonder his belly got rounder.

The Greedy Sheep

Our sheep was a bit of a glutton
It feasted on Cadbury's buttons
Eats till it pops
Now sold in the shops
As sweeties called chocolate muttons.
