Money- the poisonous honey

As powerful as an earth tremor that can tear the clinged earth plates apart, As strong as a lie that can break the glass of trust into pieces, As significant as a plastic face that can easily wipe out deformities, As realistic as a fake smile that can turn twinkling eyes into an endless ocean, As terrible as the hunger cry of an abandoned child. Dangerous to the extent of rising forest fire, Decisive to the extent of a fake friend, Dominant to the range of an unethical political voice, Indecent to the core of an uneducated mind, Unexpected as the danger of a shipwreck. As menacing as - a brick of betrayal that could break the brawny wall of honesty, one toxic drop that could turn His adorable Adam into a lump of ash, a single fire spark that could snatch the food away from the innocent forest life a luring pitcher tube that could melt the little life in its juices. The root of vengeance The seed of sorrow The decimating desire The minacious avarice And that rules the kings, Governs the supreme power, Mortifies the stony broke mob, Banishes even the brilliance and virtuosity It's not just a piece of printed paper, Not just a coin of stamped metal. Salute to you dear specie Kudos to you dear penny You are Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omnificent.
