A Thief Behind A Tuxedo, a poem (original)

in poetry •  2 years ago

The seed that grandma has sown
Is now a tree firmly grown
With thousand twigs and hundred branches
That signifies the decade it reaches

How felicitous the past accounts are
As the old in mellifluous voice recalls
The rich history as the potter
Of the molded clay of complicated present.

Behind the glamorous mask of this nation
Are those who sit like kings and queens
In their muddy kingdom of theft
A branch of satan's world on earth.

As the trees bow down, I get to conceive
"Thief" do not suggest the word empty handed
For even the person who walks in the carpet of bills
Still thirsts for people's wealth.

Lovely poem and I could really appreciate learning some new words. Thank you for that. Nice vocabulary.. The Love of Money is the root of all evil indeed. When money is merely a life tool but the greed for it swallows everything alive at the cost of anything by all means. Thank you for sharing. Upvoted

You're very welcome

Really enjoyed this! I liked how you incorporated interesting word choices and unique imagery like "the carpet of bills." Also liked how you prolonged that extended tree metaphor throughout the piece and never diverged from the main theme of greed. Great message and great job!

Thank you for posting @annesaya. Indeed.
This thought came to mind. Lust is never satisfied.
Thank you for the opportunity to think on these things.
