Description

In this poem-play, four people come to terms with the reality of the current economic crisis. Two are a working class couple trying to make a family. The other two are financial workers living in the flush of the recent economic boom. The poem-play unfolds as each deals with the ubiquitous and universal greed manifested in hyper consumerism, the central goal of profit, and the dehumanization of the wealthy and the less wealthy. Their lives are shattered as the deep immorality of the present global economic system grinds to a disaster. The play is in rhymed iambic pentameter. Readers will find that the rhythm and rhyme will raise them above the current profane and uncivil arguments of this day and enable them to join the ordinary struggle of the actors to overcome the brutal inhumanity of greed. "No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You can not serve both God and Mammon." (Mt 6:24)
