give them gold.

give them gold
it’s all they want
they never have enough

to eat
to drink
to wear

they tear each other apart
for a piece of paper
they’re screaming
and howling

she wants to burn every single
dollar bill
watch it smolder
into ash
let the flames
burn the jealous desire
right out of their hearts

but then they’d turn
their eyes to her
and shred her to pieces
so she watches them
fall apart
