Poetry

Crocodile Smile

Your hand is out in generosity

Talk of your good heart and selflessness

But that isn’t true, is it?

***

You prey on the broken and needy

You say you know what’s best for them

But how come you are the only one winning?

***

Talk of your good heart and morality

Your kindness and mercilessness

Yet you are getting richer

and the poorer are getting poorer

***

When you smile I can see your crocodile teeth

Not all can see it

But you and I know the truth

Behind your white lies
