Capital by Stuart M Snowden

The rich world
And the other half
Bow down together
To the golden calf.

In Africa
It buys bullets and bombs;
In America
Entertainment and fun.

An abstract symbol,
A token of exchange,
Has become a God
Terrible and strange

Who tramples down
With insatiable greed,
The pallid, thin figure
Of human need
