Missing the point

Play or prey
A simple choice
By corporate rules
Predator or victim
Conflict and separation
With the single stroke of a pen
In pursuit of imagined success
Machiavellian machinations
The route to riches is not paved with gold
Fool’s golden glow of dangled carrots
Luring donkeys ever onwards
Towards a goal out of reach
Beauty dies unnoticed
Kindness forgotten
Inner light dimmed
Life’s small joys
Too late

    Corporations have no humanity. And yet our government continues to give them “rights”. (K)
