Some Neo-Rich

When they wallow in luxury Yet groan in their greed, Restless as restless could be; Not aware of self's real need, Nor listening to wisdom's words, Too sure of their crooked creed; -They could have flown like birds Quite individual and free, Not driven by desire in herds- Not crown but scum of the city, They deserve not awe but our pity.
