The Tapeworm of Selfish Mammon Eats All the Good Will in the World

by Bill Yarrow

She caretakes, he takes care
She is inclusive, he feels occluded
She takes on all comers, he takes on all commerce
She's out on a limb, he's still on the lam
She has a Bachelor's in Niceness, he got his Master's in Tasks
She hurt her thumb in yoga, he bumped his head in law school
She begs to differ, he begs to defer
She collects curios, he licks Oreos
She works all the angles, he walks the perimeter
She flies east to Cape Hatteras, he drives north to Cape Cod
