Heads or Tails?

Looking back I see it now
the day undone by change,
as recognition curves my brow
I’m staggered by the range
of truly foul proclivities
exhibited by men
when tender possibilities
present their wanton yen—
the dividend of greed and lust
has placed me at the brink,
bereft of even token trust
I lean before I think...

Bob, you once again prove yourself to be quite an amazing poet. Your deft authority of word impresses me to no end.

Well thanks a lot. This was inspired by a challenge to include money and mathematical references at another site. Sometimes it's easier to have a theme to focus on. Thanks again,

Bob
