Offspring Of Greed - Poem by john chizoba vincent

The evil of greed is mayham,
The offspring of greed is death.
Do not persuade all not minding the consequences,
Learn to consider others in the same quest.
Humanity is weak and insatiable;
You can not have it all whilst your neighbour lack.
The evil of greed is destruction
Like the tortoise who wanted all by himself
But ended up having a bare head in his In-law' home.
Like my grandpa' who wanted to eat all
Before his neighbour comes but stuffed himself
To death with bread without water.
Like a student who wants to pass by all means,
Never read his book but decided to cheat in examine,
He got caught up by law, offspring of greed is death.
