Resemblance To Wealth

Written by: Frank F. Atanacio

Greed or need,
whoever designed it
is laughing at us,
despite its resemblance
to wealth,
it cripples health,
destroys the land,
flows freely
like grains of sand,
it spreads everyday,
like a necessity here,
it frightens without fear,
money and fame is the lure,
death is the cure.
