When appetite controls our actions

we transform into roaming

wild horses

stampeding down mountains

We can’t be satiated

Like a tiger we are on the hunt

It is a feeding frenzy

destroying whatever gets in our way

No remorse

It is all about feeding

our inflatable ego


It is tantamount to building

scaffolds in the sky

where our egos scatter and die
