Killing Spree - a poem that comes from thinking about economics

Killing Spree

They dug out the fox den
After they killed it.
26 dead lambs
An odoriferous meat-store.
“What kind of an animal kills
Without need?” they raged.

There was so much to have,
To choose, to consume,
He wanted it all.
Too much, how could he resist?
Appalling excess of consumption,
Justifying their rage.

How would all of us live
If we only wanted what we needed?
