Greed


Greed

A creed bred and led

Agreed to seed and feed

To wield, yield and share proceed

They rallied and succeeded never superseded

Then threatened by hubris headed towards greed

On a stampede to exceed and avarice to mislead

Perpetrated misdeeds with vengeance unleashed

Bloodied and harried they did bleed

Soon harmed and alarmed desired to be released

Ashamed and disgraced with venality to be blamed

Sought gratification pleaded to be reseeded

For they all did concede

Judas did betray Jesus allured by greed

Damned were Ahab and Jazebel for greed.

  1. Sometimes I wonder if ‘negativity’ has more influence on us, compared to the good and positive. History has proved that humanity has gone through so much tribulation, yet, we never cease to repeat our choices.
