"GREED" Tom Zart


Greed is an unwholesome desire,
A craving to obtain all desired by man.
Caused by gluttonous, ego and conceit,
As we eagerly grasp everything we can.

Wealth, fame, power and libido,
Are the trophies of what greed consists of.
A hunger to experience every exotic wish,
Overpowering the glory of love.

Twisted by pursuing all, which is wrong,
Our compassion becomes self-serving.
We ?re tormented by mistrust, suspicion and rage,
And our downfall as a human is deserving.
