Beware of Snakes

Disclosing the obligation of receiving political donations
Donations are an interest that gets called in for favors
Favors are there to take advantage of our systems
Systems used to take advantage of self serving interests
Interests of business is a return on their investments
Investments with strings to nowhere yield no profits  
Profits are the golden rule at the heart of any business
Business without profits gets funding from somewhere
Somewhere out there is a truth hiding within the grass
Grass is where snakes take refuge before they strike

    Some snakes don't even take refuge, not only wolves wear sheep's clothing. Enjoyed the read!

    You are a man of conscience and heart, with strong feelings... and that often leads to internal conflict and unanswerable questions, good poem. Emile.

    This is much more than a poem Edward. You have penned wisdom here. Taking it to its crypted foundation. Great wording removing meaningful layers to get to the important conveying ingredient. A 7 for the thought process it took to get to the ending. Cleverly done, and I appreciated Edward!

    Brilliant, I loved the connection between each end words to the next starting one.It is a unique approach I have seen nowhere.Loved the ending it fully connects and completes the poem.
