A Parody of Business

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


Imprudent thoughts, wishes spurned,

frustration gained and confusion earned,

surrounded by fools and shallow minds,

the aftermath given to redeem in time.


Sick of lies and brash mistakes,

in greed an egocentric race,

to kingdom build with matchstick walls,

the grim delusion of wealth restored.


What guides so much in people's lives,

is how they're seen in public eyes,

with outside deemed in favour born,

of lost and deluded needs so torn.


Regardless of collateral loss,

the drive to win is chilled with frost,

when promises of obligations made,

a dismal oversight in endless parade.


So business built on dollars alone,

does lay waste to all connections prone,

to forsake all innocents in the way,

and suck dry a life in vast array.


Where ethics were once the foundation of trust,

in business and trade a forgotten must,

instead a savage and relentless greed,

deferred of emotion or care in deed.
