“Is the opposite of need complacency

And is that a bad thing?”,

The billionaire asked his third wife

At the funeral of his 40 year old

Drug addicted son who had

Never needed or wanted for anything

Except more

When he was interrupted by a phone call

From his investment team

On how they could make the profit he needed

By closing the money losing factory

Where the workers worked

At the same jobs their fathers had

Turning natural resources ripped from the earth

With a belch of black smoke into

Garden gnomes and participation trophies

That nobody needed but everybody wanted

To feed their children.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
