Corruption, the Desolation of our Souls

Poverty (NYT)SIMON DAVIDSON

Corruption, like a cancer, is eating our nation,
Dwindling our coffers and desolating our souls,
Forcing obsolescence on great moral pillars,
Spinning our country towards destruction.

The root cause of this plague --- insane greed,
Insatiable leaders of our resource rich land,
With inflated egos and bloated ambition,
Believing they need all for themselves to feed.

They had a moral choice to a moral deal,
To avert our nation from venality and greed,
To stem the tide of rampant damage.
To live in adherence to a moral ideal.

By integrity, they could build an ethical base,
Through morality, they could remake the nation.
