Pillars of Power ii

we had dreams of money sacks
sealing deals like Mario Draghi and Lloyd Blankfein
on the 44th floor of Goldman
and we hoped for even more… if not worse
girls, excess

so we made a pact
to expand our network
just two friends – young, gifted and black
trying to raise our net worth
by any means

    So it appears, right? But that acquisitive nature can be observed in us too, only difference being the varying degrees depending on opportunity. We are a greedy species after all.
