Demon Seed - Poem by Robert James Smith

The demon of Want
is the brother of Need
poor simple farmers
out planting their seed
for lively Ambition
whose hunger they feed
and starving young children
Necessity and Greed

Necessity grew
Little Greedy grew fat
Invention and Progress
were born after that
Both suffered greatly
and died for the sins
of Corruption, Destruction
the evilest twins.

Topic(s) of this poem: corruption, evil, greed, philosophy, politics, want
