Buy and sell 
sex and fast food.
Of note or notorious, 
crimes and demeanor compound the lie.
Easy money easily forgets -
passing fads promise success -
fear opens holes never filled - 
trophies never penetrate pain.

Fast money 
on the bottom line tempts and titillates -
Vulture cronies feast in the lobby,  
getting more of the same for the few.

Plutocrats are lionized -
paupers are demonized -
more begets more and "less" is a dirty word 
spoken by empty mouths 
in bread lines and soup kitchens.

Stoke the engine of progress -
stroke the belly of desire -
fabricate a need where none exists -
release and devour -
"excess" is mantra now - 
a meager meditation 
on appetite and defecation.

Cups run over with oil - 
and rivers too.
Credit cards consume - 
casinos comp -                             
lotteries scratch the itch - 
bingo halls call true believers to worship 
at altars where wafer and wine 
become dollars and cents - 
where Wall Street is Mecca and 
the big board is truth.
