Money Is Cheaper - Poem by Kassem Oude

When it serves the ego's evil side
To fulfill worst intents and whims
Keep them in secret to save pride
And coveted wild dreams to brim

The simple bares and erases sins
Palace in heavens he would buy
Or amulets to keep away Djinns
Clear mental disease to kin guy

To grasp hegemony and rule
In hiring consciences bribing votes
To rob whole treasury like a ghoul
To treat people meaner than goats

Who love appearance may decay
Neglect necessities deprive health
Thinking others praise what they lay
Not to measure their belly girth

Bad addictions wealth may deplete
Don't endeavor any of those ways
You'd be miserable none you greet
Rueful when regret has no quays.

    Money is too tempting for some people. They would sell their souls for it. I believe you are correct to call it a mental disease. We can only pity the poor people who go crazy for money. A very well written poem, filled with truth. (Report) Reply
