The Bottom-Line

Eyes only on the bottom-line,
we seek to build, but not refine.
For profit’s sake, we play with lives
with silicon brains, traces and wires.


We’ve lost the art of doing well;
for dollars do we deal with hell.
Tomorrows children will forever pay
for the choices that we make today.
