Scenes from a Pyramid Scheme

Compulsive necessity

For irregular consumption

Divine manifestation

Of opulent corruption

Embezzle from justice

Pedaling glitz with a


Smashing through hearts

With blatant disregard

Taste of the weak

Cycles of status

Internal rot

Self-destruct timer

Emptied souls

Grasp violently

For relevance

And adoration

Tip of the pyramid

Singular vision

Ruthless ascent

Chaotic demise

Time will see the fall

Of your castle walls

Tectonic shift

Crumble, crumble

The mice will move on

The crumbs will gather

Wealth is fleeting

Gather popcorn for disaster

The backs on which

You built your wealth

Eventually shift to

Destroy what you haven’t built
