  33.     

COFFIN OF GOLD

All around its greed
More more more I need
If I have one I need more
I am not satisfied anymore

Not in my dream, I would share
Greed overtook me and I stopped to care
I am no longer satisfied with anything
Feel like owning everything

All the money in the world
Still greed tells me more and more
Where I will bury all these wealth
I have lost myself that’s the truth

Help me …to me they plead
Greedy I am to see them plead
What will I do with all these money?
Still more more more I need

Maybe I will have a coffin of gold
Stacked inside with paper money
Where will I take these after I die?
With open arms and in coffin I lie

No more can I hold anything
The truth to leave behind everything
Still I am filled with greed
More more more I need

The Desert

What are we, without our make-believe breeding
Who am I, if it's not you that I'm feeling
We're out of time, no longer aligned
You lie resigned, my words; declined

Now what I need; just feels like greed...

What point is there, if this evening's dry
No sweat escaped, no sparkling eyes
Just some feed, followed by some sleep
You barely see what I dread to keep

But what I need; just feels like greed...

So when did it become
A party with no invitation
When were we locked out
Of the passionate celebration

Now what I need; just feels like greed...

How much longer will we walk here
In the blazing sun with no water
How much longer can I just lie here
This appetite, unsatisfied beside her

But what I need; just feels like greed...

(2007)

  35.     

Greed

summer comes and in the streets
somebody walks sombody talks
you come and lay your hand on me
but i just really don't want
summer comes with summer games
summer comes with wind and dust
i don't think you sense the strain
all your love is in the past

feelings are humiliated in a paroxysm of greed
sticky hands all over the place
words are all unable to fit
into the weary mask of your face
aimlessness and voice is gone
dreary days sink into sand
all the right moves were wrong
and our very hearts were lent

i think i should drink
till i can't see
please allow me
to forget your greed
my greed
all the greed in the world
the images distort
again and again
and it never ends
we're always greedy

  36.     

Greed

I tell you greed is grasping
It roots on acid ground
Sucks the juice of the muck
Even at the last gasp
Clings with avid vines
On broken slabs and angels
With broken cement wings

I tell you greed is quenchless
It begrudges the sun its brilliance
Envious of the moon’s glow
Sweeps all the stardust and
Gathers them with a dustpan
And stores them in dark rooms
Enjoying them in demented isolation

I tell you greed is without compassion
Thriving on hedonistic nurture
Denying closeness and amity
Cuts off the umbilical nexus
Shun familial obligations
Shrugs off the flakes of conscience
From the black dress of indifference

I tell you greed is shameless
Ecstatic in pelf and exaggerated self worth
Gloats over riches felt deserved
Forgetful and incognizant of God’s grace
Jingling patina encrusted coins
Amused and savoring the endless count
In glee…in endless count…in glee
