The Cycle of Greed

12" x 12" mixed media on canvas

The news clamors and shouts,
a reminder of the mortality and powerlessness
of Impoverished Multitudes

Their suffering is linked to numbers 
that rise and fall on a street with walls 
no one walks on without a suit
While our wealthy politicians with no clothes
give speeches of naked ambition,
financial mavericks fill vaults with blood-stained gold

America has overdosed on economic heroin,
the high cost of fiscal deification
justified by insane logic & the anarchy of supple sins.
