Title: Sykle Billy's Insect Society Interface Scenario With Greed And A Pound Of Flesh .

Smell the acrid greed .
Compelled by need .
In the insect city .
Where the money monster sucks you dry .
The financial district .
Morning tide .
Incoming people .
Insular people .
Greenback scream.
Flexible plastic dream .
Hordes of ants .
Programmed .
Single-minded .
Blinkered .
Voracious .
Professional ; career worker .
Amateur ; family shirker .
Money watcher .
Index worshipper .
On the up-and-up .
Open door policy .
Walks the walk .
Talks the talk .
Mapped out career path .
False bravado .
No honesty .
Treads on others .
Uses others .
For gain .
Personal kudos .
Corporate brownie points .
Aims to please .
Seen to succeed .
Driven by need .
But the ulcer grows .
Secretly bleeds .
Hidden fears .
Through the years .
Mounting stress .
Cardiovascular caress .
Working junk lunch .
Pound of flesh .
Long hours .
Insecurities .
Doubts .
Embedded now .
Sold your soul .
No way out .
Justify the sacrifice ?
Lonely family home .
Estranged kids .
Divorce arguments .
Disenchanted wife .
Insect society .
Outgoing tide .
In an evil rut .
Can't run .
Can't hide .
No place .
No time .
Heart failure .
No point .
No good .
No life .
