Excess is bad


“Excess of everything is bad”
It is observed and well said
The greed spoils mentality of person
He stoops so below without any reason

Person must gain wealth to certain limit
More of it can earn wrath and seal the fate
There may be increase in family quarrels
Inside home and nothing may go well

Even cruelty, to certain extent, is tolerated
Suppression is also sometimes disregarded
So much of it can prove disastrous for king also
The public may rise in revolt for downfall to bring

Restraint and patience is must
You should believe and trust also
Hard work is needed to gain everything
Too much greed is likely to harm for nothing

The ill fame may make man unpopular
The people may keep some distance and keep him far
He will never be able to gain same position
He will worsen all kinds of relation

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
