Treasure Island

Ladon Trueston


Greed Is...


Greed is a place in which you can't escape,
Greed is the base of distrust and mistake;
It swallows you whole, and you can never get out
no matter how much you claw your way about;
Greed is a place in which you can't escape.

Greed is the place in which you can't escape,
When it takes you in there's no way to leave
All you can do is sit there and greave,
You will see Greed's true colors when
one friend betrays the others;
That is Greed a place in which you can't escape.

    This is a very powerful poem my friend. It speaks of the root of all evil. Greed has almost destroyed this country, it is destroying the world. There will be a time when the evil ones will realize you can’t eat money and everything else worthwhile has perished. Well done.. (Report) Reply

In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
