People

 

I see gold,
and golden places,
stiff necks and fledgling souls,
I witness mangled bodies,
Beneath mammoth towers,
 few perished with hunger,

and up this urban grey,
 some with gluttony, 

Behind some smiles,
I know the ones broken,
For few dreams fulfilled,
The thoughts silenced,

I hear in my city,
voices of those,
who seldom sleep at night,
A day's toil brings little less
Everyday,
their children coil up in a corner,

sleeping a  night that never ends,

I see modern justice,

I observe a cunning culling,

of the people, by the people, for the people.

This poem could mean alot, it's something that the poet is disturbed by, but it is not outspoken, but the feel of it is clear, that the people of a lesser God are everywhere, with poison and with no good. Great speach

Greed is a terrible thing and excess of money seems to change people, make them less caring for those who don't. The world is turning more and more that way. It's a very sad world we live in and this is a very good poem to point out, like you say it, a 'lesser god.'
