The Power of Greed
I wonder how people, though foolish or wise,
Can easily succumb to evil and vice
Cherished, praised and admired, they may be,
But greed has surpassed every man, you see.
A sleepless malice sweeps through their minds,
Dreams of avarice in their forehead lines
Money, power, pleasure and lechery
What more can a mind think, that is full of treachery?
But someday they will be trapped in the web of deceit,
When their wealth won’t help to pay a forfeit
But still they’ll stand, looking back at the door,
Always, always, wanting more
Such is the power, the power of greed,
No matter what you say, they will never give heed
It has killed not dozens, but a billion lives,
Of course, you can try, but it always thrives.
So listen, my kin, come what may,
To the evil eye of greed, don’t you fall prey!
For greed is nothing, but a dismal den,
Once got in, you’ll never find you back again.
