Quotes about tycoon

Scratch Off Heaven

The discarded scratch offs
Told of another chance at heaven lost.
One thought - perhaps they were purchased
By a commercial realty tycoon -
This is the way it should work
Those having wealth gaining their 'more.'
No, the tycoon will be on the golf links
Or perhaps even in church seeking his heaven.
Six dollars in scratch offs helping to guarantee
The tycoon will stay rich and buttresing my Mother's wisdom
Heaven is won one hard step forward at a time.

In the last James Bond movie, the villain was a culture captain, a tycoon of culture, a Murdoch figure. It's not as if people don't know what is going on.

Gold digger and the Golden Goose

Though the miner digs for gold he never gets gold; only the weekend poor wage he counts with tears
And the gold runs to the tycoon.
The poor man's golden goose never lays golden eggs.

*[ According to the ancient Greek fable, the owner killed the goose to get all the gold at once.]

A Text message

'A fellow poet from Solomon Islands.
Hey! My scribbler what's your Motto exactly? '

'To be a rotten hard boiled egg
And finish the journey in a Tycoon's Bog.
A poor Hen's soloist somber offspring.'
I responded.

*God does not create poverty, we do, because we do not share.
-Mother Teresa

Deprived daughter of a Homeless

Poor ragged Cali looks in the mirror (lid of a can)
That hangs on the cardboard wall
And she mutters; 'If I become Miss World
And when a handsome tycoon brings a gem studded Crown?
I humbly bow him and test whether it fits for my nutty head.'

*Dedication to the Honourable Governor Mr.Jerry Brown for healthy, wealthy and a beautiful California!

which read

so i bought
100 of them,

Those last days

the boy is all grown up
rich, a tycoon in fact
but occasionally
touching expressions
of old, still steal
their way to his face

an emotion bruised child -
who had day by day
watched mom emaciated
till her last breath broke
his heart into pieces
never to heal again -
returned to him in another
bout of despair

the pain dawned like
periodic attacks,
jagged pieces
poking, choking him

Texas Fences

Bush’s folly, a costly border fence
Built along the mighty Rio Grande
Small farmers have no real defense
For their Eminent Domained land

There are a wealthy few exempt
Like Ray L Hunt, a big oil tycoon
Reason he and others are preempt
They’re in Bush old boy commune

Fences end where rich folks live
And some golf courses along the way
Commoners told to sacrifice and give
Or sued and fined to make them pay

“All men are created equal” is a lie
Change cannot happen till we unify
