Greed Is Out - Poem by Hebert Logerie

Greed Is Out

Greed is out,
Yes, yes, let’s shout,
Again and again:
Greed is out.
Let’s spout, let’s shout!
Realized pain
And unrealized gain
Are not taxable.
Political contributions
Are not deductible.
No stock options!
The Stock Market
Lost its jacket
And its pants.
Common sense
Must prevail.
No bail, no bail,
For the crooked billionaire;
It is just, it is fair
To lock him up
‘Cause he is at the very top
Of the super-kleptomaniac list.
He is a mad genius;
He killed telepathically,
And he loved fame and money.
What a disgrace!
What a dishonest face!
No bail, no bail,
For such a whale!
Stock him in jail,
Squish him in hell,
Greed is out,
Let’s spout, let’s shout!

    you hit the nail on the head, and he has to toss and turn while in his bed.
    his greed cost suffering and pain, and his clients will never be the same.

    In giving and sharing unselfishly do we find true treasures. :) Nice way of writing out what is not wanted or needed to be rich. DC (Report) Reply

    Lets hope now we can have a more equal sharing of the assets of this world. Lets all take on assets of compassion were we see a hungry child and try to heal a wounded world. (Report) Reply

    Everyone receives in a more powerful way the actions that they've done sooner or later. They pay it. Outs will return. (Report) Reply
