Greed Is Out
Greed Is Out
Greed is out,
Yes, yes, let’s shout,
The Man Whose Riches Satisfy His Greed
The man whose riches satisfy his greed
Is not more rich for all those heaps and hoards
Than some poor man who has enough to feed
And clothe his corpse with such as God affords.
Through sake of chance
......Some odd result
I dream a scene
Where a baby falls asleep
Having sucked a pair of breasts
Resembling two pomegranates weighing ten kg.
As you grow up in this world,
the facts and stories that were untold slowly unfold.
You are forced to bear a lot of pain
and you just can't complain.
Go Away Greed
You are unseen but also captured
In minds of many you are featured,
You divert the child well nurtured,
On grazing by you animals are pastured.
When Greed Outstrips Needs
When Greed Outstrips Needs (A Rondel of 13 lines)
When outstripped are our needs by Greed
Or love of Fame our still outweighs,
When I watch folks of this world and see how widespread
It is for those, that pile up treasure and put on fat, to chafe
At the bit and grasp for more, the way they hunger for a safe
As broad as the ocean, and so deep, that it'd never touch the seabed,
God fashioned man out of earth
In His image and breathed life into him
Woman He created for him to love
Dominion over creation, He gave him
