In God We Trust: An Economic Fairytale

She is muslim

to her drinking is swallowing the devil.

But, she has to worship economics before religion,

so she is a representative of Carlsberg during the night

and Allah during the day.

Table to table she floats like a butterfly in a hijab

collecting cans, bottles and bottle caps

to send back to her head office

to prove her worth to the company.

To Allah she has a seperate debt

far removed from this wordly hell,

where money is God

and heaven is too expensive a price to pay.
