Mammon - Poem by Richard Le Gallienne
(FOR MR, G. F. WATTS'S PICTURE)
Mammon is this, of murder and of gold,
To-day, to-morrow, and ever from of old,
Th' Almighty God, and King of every land.
Man 'neath his foot, and woman 'neath his hand,
Kneel prostrate: he, 'tis meant to symbolise,
Steals our strong men and our sweet women buys.
O! rather grind me down into the dust
Than choose me for the vessel of thy lust.
