Selfish Social Climbers - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Selfish social climbers with an eye on greed,
Dig themselves a bigger hole to get and deceive.
With it getting deeper.
That hole they dig is wide to get...
Deeper.
But the teasing of the greed they can not seem to leave.

Selfish social climbers with an eye on greed,
Dig themselves a bigger hole to get and deceive.
And it gets bigger.
That hole that's dug they dig for them,
Gets deeper!
And the cheating with the greed deceives their need,
To feed.

Impressed with a false success.
Those selfish social climbers with an eye on greed.
With a wish to just charade their best.
Those selfish social climbers with an eye on greed,
Addressing only themselves and their selfish needs.
And digging bigger holes from them they will never leave.

Deeper.
Those selfish social climbers digging deeper.
Getting deeper in a hole,
To expose their roles.
And getting deeper...
Those selfish social climbers digging deeper.
Getting deeper in a hole,
To expose their roles.
And getting deeper.

Impressed with a false success.
And doing it with selfishness.
Those selfish social climbers with an eye on greed.
Digging bigger holes from them they will never leave.
Just to address their confessed selfish needs.

Deeper.
Those selfish social climbers digging deeper.
Getting deeper in a hole,
To expose their roles.
And getting deeper.
Those selfish social climbers digging deeper.
Getting deeper in a hole,
To expose their roles.
And getting deeper.
Sinking...
Deeper.
Sinking...
Deeper.

Those selfish social climbers digging deeper.
Sinking...
Deeper.
Sinking...
Deeper.
Sinking.

Those selfish social climbers digging deeper.
Sinking...
Deeper.
Sinking...
Deeper.
Sinking.

Those selfish social climbers digging deeper.
