3rd in the 'Calling All Poets for the Poetry Competition of 2003' competition

The evil tycoon that runs the earth down to the core,

The cause for the difference between the rich and the poor,

He makes those who have, want more,

His irresistible charm,

Has the power to disarm,

Without him, there would be no need for money,

Everyone would take his allotted share, and not attempt anything funny,

Some say he was raised for the devil –

A tool, much like a bevel,

Others say he was born in a box,

Released into the air, as sly as a fox,

Nothing that is good in this world is free,

Life is good, so I’m convinced that he’s a camouflaged fee.
