Sonnet to the Corporate Towers

Posted by

These master brutes be-numbed by greed to lead

Narcissistic cravers suck off others’ stolen feed

All, they feign compassion, practice and rehearse their cares

One purpose only, for me, for I, no other thought but theirs

Giving speeches, reports and stamps for work they have no claim

Climbing always, assuming their position, they bow so lame

They kiss her feet then turn to touch the ground

Pretending to be loyal, this sacrifice their pleasure found

When turned away for another, they pretend and hide their sore

Quickly changing habits panting for another’s door

Slap one down, they churn and elbow yipping bores

Endless chasms falsely lit by sycophants all chasing scores

It all comes finally down in one resounding crash

Their designs finally rest — in the morning trash.
