economic growth

is a cancer
projecting from
the mouth of
talking heads
     spoken in many languages
it matters not
what the trigger is
     war     climate catastrophe    
     ebola     rocketing healthcare costs
     oil speculators     rent gougers
if the prices go up
all is justified
all is short-term
all is forgotten by the next election or coup d'tat
poverty is a street
paved in spreadsheets
