aGreed

Greed
strangles love
kills compassion
destroys one’s soul
yet we make rich people
our heroes
long to win the lottery
want more, more, more.

I asked a rich man
if he could walk away
from all he had
he shook his head
though he knew I was right
his need to hoard
was killing his soul
on that we both
aGREED.
