Little Greed - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

We fall victim to little greed
We intend not to obey or heed
Land ears to wrong feeds
Result can openly be read

No one has come out of it
It is one of the strongest cases and seems to be fit
We need to constrain little and be watchful
Else whole of the rest life may be spent as remorseful

I gather the incidence from the past
How powerful and great saint had sunk very fast
He had spent years together in meditation
But he was overcome with sex relation

Temptation can be in any form
Money. Woman or land can leave you full torn
No one has resisted it successfully
We know the consequences fully

You may loose peace of mind
Some of the works you may have to perform as blind
No relation or bond may affect your thinking
This is enough reason for your sinking

You may involve in dangerous game
It won’t hurt your pride for any kind of shame
You may want it at any cost with whatever result
This may have affected your sense with insult

It will never end even after realization
You may go on adding it with obligation
Time may come when you may fail at all the fronts
Even your own people may abuse you and confront

You may loose your temper
You body may be shivering with anger
You may not be able to eat even in hunger
You may curse yourself for the greatest blunder

Such things do happen
We must be cautious even
No one has escaped such dragnet
Let the sand settle down and set
