TSUNAMI OF GREED



Hades*, some have decided to enrich, with 

The souls of the poor**


For


The mighty greedy people of this world, may

Preserve their fortunes!

* Pluto, the Underworld
**One, for better to evaluate this Epigram, should have 
a look at my poem “ Greek Tragedy” posted on the 15 of July.
There I present a number of facts, concerning the financial crisis
of Greece. The facts are also presented by BBC today.
Here I only mention the confirmed 10.000 suicides that
took place in Greece the last five years. To the memory of those 
people, I dedicate this poem.

Cause and effect.. Our world is upside down when people are treated as mere pawns. You bring this out perfectly in your short but powerful piece!

My heart bleeds for Greece. My brother and family just came back from a holiday there and they enjoyed it so very much. They said the people are so kind and friendly. It's so sad the country suffers from financial problems. O Theos Mazi Sas!!! Filakia

Yes, Greek people despite the difficulties they face, never have lost their hospitality and self respect. Happy your Brother's family enjoyed their stay. Thank you for your empathy my dearest friend, Eileen. God bless you!

Many only see riches and not souls. As long as there is money to be made they don't care how it is achieved.

Absolutely right you are my friend, Tim. Their heart is fed by profit regardless how many souls have to be lost! God bless you!
