The Greedy Guests

If guests at the banquet start sneaking
second and third helpings
while the line still stretches down the hallway
and out the patio door,
the food will run out before some plates
have been filled even once.
Why then do you sit before three platters full
and make inquiries of the hungry?

Friends, I tell you: if you want to discover
the cause of poverty, go and see a rich man.
