World Of Greed


Subliminal messages
in a world of greed
They start you young
To sow the seed

To get you to agree
to what the powers that be
want you to be

They'll even take your country
if they feel the need
will we ever be truly free
in a world of greed

    Wow, wow, Dave Walker,
    Very well structure, easy to read and very short-lined poem.
    Just how truth is the world full of greedy people... Therefore, we have many wars, country boundary, patriotism spirit to split and destroy human race.
    I think we should go back to the basic especially religion teaching and some Buddhism Karma practice to avoid greed and selfish. I rated this poem 10/10..Well Done, Dave.... (Report) Reply

    At least we know with Poets like you, and Eric spreding the message, its not too late for our country, or the world to change. Your words are spot on and the truth is evident to anyone who takes the time to listen. Keep up the great work. (Report) Reply
