World abandonment
vanity infests
greed escalates
charity nullified

Competitive paradise
prices uncontrollable
hunger staggering
debt maximized

Honest  lost
integrity futile
words misconstrued
greed rapid

Equality vanished
pensions minute
labor intensified
 jobs down sized

World absorbed
humans consumed
profits soar
mortgages abandoned

World immobilized
composure lost
hope desperate
destruction eminent.

    The people have allowed this to happen. It's time we took the power out of their hands. Vince

    It certainly looks as if we are headed in that direction. Your writing is quite good.

    oh, my, I can see how you are feeling so well with this one. Echoing my own concerns and fears! The way you wrote it tersely and in short phrases lends a swiftness to the sense of impending doom. We all need a miracle! Luv, Andrea

    A beauty of a poem to enjoy one has to read aloud, Phyllis

    Mayhem for sure, Phyllis! I really like the quick meter of this thought-provoking write. Two words per line -- a subject and a verb each. Quite a remarkable free verse style you have developed here. Bravo! Love, Carolyn
