Fraudsters*

 

Come let
us
pour

our
hearts
now

with nectar
in a
sieve

it is how
we
think
now

it is how
we
live

 
*
 
We let
it all
just
drain now

we take
but do
not give

easy
to
forget now

but never
to
forgive

with charity
to
none

and malice
toward
all<
/em>

if this be
their Vaunted
‘Garden’

how steep
could be
Their Fall?

 
*
 
Morals
forfeit
long ago

Ethics
down
the drain

all complicit
are here
and now

nor ANY
wholly
sane

norms
expunged
forever now

all hope for
us
is vain

*

Greed and
hubris
run amok

Mammon the
only
god

their idylls
a cruel hoax
now

their promises
a
fraud

*
Yes their
idylls

are just a
cruel
joke

their solemn
oaths a
fraud?

 
*
They sure know who they are: but do You know it, too?
