Great Big Boxes

Today my husband told me that one in five homeowners in our state will experience home foreclosure. We certainly haven’t been immune to the mortgage fiasco in either employment or in housing. During the heat of our own crisis I penned some observations.

Great Big Boxes

(Ode to Shepherd Greed)

Great big boxes

grazing on the land

being herded on and on

by their shepherd, Greed

Stare into their

vacant eyes that

lead to vacant souls

No one wants such

monsters, but

their shepherd, Greed

Shepherd Greed, a

strange foul hybrid

that thrives here

in the land

of great big boxes
