Greed is a Pig

Greed is a Pig

Greed is a pig
Who has all but ruined world economies,
Taking not only his share, but others’ too.
Greed is a pig
Who gobbles up all he sees,
Caring not a jot or tittle
Whether others starve.
The more he has, the more he needs;
Prudence and thrift are words
Foreign to his ears.

Profits are all that count at the end of his day!
Profits and percentages!
Are there no good men to call his bluff?
Brave and upright men of honour
With brains who can explain
Exorbitant salaries,
Magnificent emoluments,
To the world at large,
And how, at the end of the day,
The poorest of earth’s inhabitants could benefit instead.

Note: ‘Men’ includes both sexes

The Maple Tree


The Maple Tree

The maple tree stands tall and proud against the boundary wall,
Its leaves beginning to turn
From green to the rich red-golds and maroons
Of the late autumn season.

On the ground surrounding the tree lie the fallen leaves,
Rustling in the softest breeze
Joined by others wafting gently down towards the earth
To rest in peace on the dew damp grass.

Soon the tree will be completely bare, exposed to all
The elements of winter – wind, cold and frost.
With no protection whatsoever
It will stand brave, strong and true until the spring.

The Choice

The Choice

She sat at a table in the corner café
Sipping her latté, a thousand miles away.
She had to make a choice – the hardest in her life –
To live alone in peace or continue with the farce.

Who would have thought it would end like this?
Twenty years together, with never a trace
Of duplicity or treachery, deceit or betrayal,
Their future was assured and their marriage could not fail.

Who would have thought it would fall apart?
Nothing is certain in matters of the heart.
The thrill of young love gives a new lease in life
And this, with all the flattery, is hard to resist.

She must be brave and make a new start.
She must be strong and protect her heart.
She has to accept she is on her own;
She has no choice but to continue alone.
