Running for President by Donal Mahoney


Running for President

Greed is good
said Gordon Gekko
but greed is God

to some who
have more money
than one can count

and must hire
others to count it.
But in America one

can seek power
to feed one’s greed
because no one has

too much power
even if one has
too much money

until the day
the hearse pulls up
and takes the flesh away.
