Satisfaction, Of The World - Poem by Richard Merrell

The satisfaction of the world
Is mainly what they can get
A house, a car, money in the bank
Or a fancy TV set.
The satisfaction of the world
They see as what they can eat
Expensive foods, take-a-way's
Lollies that are sweet.
The satisfaction of the world
Is also what they can do;
Sorcery, fornication, witchcrafts
Other abominations too.
The satisfaction of the world
Cannot fulfill their need
'cause the basis of most of it
Is in the word called 'greed'

The satisfaction of the world
Can work no charm on me
Because my satisfaction is -
In God eternaly.
'God, give me not poverty nor riches,
feed me with food that is plain;
lest I be full and deny Thee
or steal, thus taking Thy name in vain.'

Proverbs 1: 21-23
