Politics and history of our time,
oh, look at those sad people,
they can't stop.
Almost cartoon-like greed
So obvious
But they can't stop.

My greed no less than theirs
but through great good fortune
I am not a billionaire
Or even a millionaire

We're in a Play, yes we are
and it doesn't matter the part
but to understand the story.
Perhaps you are one of the targets
of the greedy people
who have way too much
for them to stop wanting more

Hunter or prey,
Clown or savior
Only way to know the part
Is to stop and look and
not be moved by
the exquisite drama
and heightened feeling
of self.

Even an actor
who knows the lines
backward and forward
has to be present
on the stage.
