GREED

Man and his greed
prevalent in different cultures and creeds
supposedly for the riches
such an irony it is
makes one poorer
tested and failed through times
yet it lures
and sucks right in
of unkept promises
known for it's betrayals
still enjoys a huge fan base
seemingly greener pastures
all arid with time
greed takes you places
manages to change faces
of power and wealth
not good for health
a sinister vice
engulfs the soul
mirrors the character
the seed of greed reaps misery
Oh man-look what greed has done to you
sold your spirit for the want of more
don't let it make you bleed
content is the man bereft of greed
