The Greedy Man Poem by ANJANDEV ROY

The Greedy Man

Rating: 4.8

In the dark
And silent night,
The man fell deep asleep,
He was very greedy,
After a while,
He thought in his ambitious vision,
"I need more money,
I need more jewels,
I need more comfort, "
Suddenly someone asked him
From the dark environment,
"But why don't you think that you need more knowledge? "
The covetous man became stunned.

The BRAIN is so important for the human body. That's why it is protected by the hardest bone. Let's use it. It is not a bonus.
