Adrian Wait

Rookie (A Long while ago / England)

Greed


Greed
Indifference
Repetitive shadows
yield not substance
Insincerities seed
Concealed in statistics
masked with deception
Shameless in their fraud
mantle of Leadership
worn by thieves
Divide and rule
the oldest trick
categorise to dismiss
distraction and spin
corruptions chosen tools
shame resigned to history
Luxury the Objectivity
Of the disengaged mask
challenge conformity
disclose accusations
Of subjectivity
Of naivety
Of envy
Greed

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.

If with light head erect I sing,
