Greed Betrayed - Poem by Gajanan Mishra
I am betrayed by greed and also
Pride of pelf perverted
And also I am smitten
By the shaft-like glances
Of a fawn-eyed woman and I am polluted
By desire of progeny, wealth and fame.
And my reputation has been
Marred by worldly attachment,
I am bitten by the serpent of care,
And I am overcome by Your delusive potency
O my dear, see, I am thrown out
Of my mental equipoise by combined
Actions of goodness, passion and ignorance.
