Mammon

Mammon is fat
to the unguarded heart
a plague of need
like concrete in the core
bearing you
down, down, down

Mammon is killer
to the hate-filled soul
corruption upon your wings
like heavy chains in the water
bearing you
down, down, down

Mammon tears the eyes
leaving you blind
to the pain of others
leaving you behind
a pillar of salt in the desert

alone
