It is now an unravelable tangle.

Greece pays pharmacies in four
months, providers are paid
in a month.
  
Profit is as mythical
as the tales of the Gods
and Goddesses with fancy names

Broken Greek, a reference
to the population one at a time.
Broken state, unable to keep
the people fed while simultaneously
financing low productivity.
  
Austerity is mostly a sure vote
out of power. Greece, where
democracy was born, is birthing
twin concepts, lovingly swaddled,

and adoringly christened
poverty and starvation.
