Greed

Greed
shuffles the green
grinning at his reward as his
guilty client walks

nights turned sleep into
revealing a dawn of
unspoken formidable laws

justice provided a promotion
humbling the gesture towards
money’s ice cream

handshakes unravel chains
jingling child-widower tears as

unsolved bodies lay buried
