Greed - Poem by nicholas casillas

I sit and stare at what weve become
What is society doing what has it become
Can we blame our goverment
Or should we blame ourselves
Constantaly buying everything we see on the shelves
We as people get so greedy
Do you need your fancy car?
Do you need your big house?
But do you know children are dying?
Its because the lack of money that were supplying
Am i lying?
No now im crying!
Brothers and sisters come and speak
Greed is whats making our country week
The hardships we face
Those gratatious events
When will it end?
What will it cost?
Will my tears suffice? !
People we can be one
share what we can
For when you look at history
Greed has done no good
Greed will end your tides
Greed is the shine in your eyes
Greed is what seperates me between you!
