    Agreed......greed is very much alive and well amongst the rich and powerful in most nations. See my poem, On Justice.....you'll not doubt understand the impact of greedy rich on how justice is meted out these days. Ciao. (Report) Reply

    Raise your voices not only to
    Joyful encounters, stand up
    Be counted with those who
    Painfully goes to bed, hungry,
    Wake up in despair,
    Lend a hand, you who have much,
    Help to eradicate greed!
    One world humanity lives,
    Your time to help is now!

    A nice word, Greed. Help to eradicate greed. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
