She wanted to erupt but hesitated to disrupt,
waiting instead with temper asimmer!
Her ears burned, her cheeks flamed
as her eyes flared,
following the threads of discussion
which always seemed to trace back
to the root of all evil, money.
Churches needed it to run offices, schools
and take care of the poor.
Governments needed it firstly for salaries,
benefits and pension,
lastly for the voters back home.
Localities needed it for leaky schools in need of repair,
for roads no longer funded by the state
and for libraries grown beyond being repositories of books
She breathed deeply, knowing this too would pass.
Those who have little must live in a world designed
to get its share of their tiny piece of the pie
while those who have lots work hard to be happy
while consumed with the fire to get more of the pie.
Eruptions come and go,
catastrophes and disasters come without warning
or warnings unheeded by folks unprepared.
So it was and would be again,
the world spinning on its axis,
still waiting to be appreciated
for the wonder it was.
