|Best Poems About / On GREED
The World I Would Like
Into the world i would like does not exist many things that we face today
there is no nationality... we are all citizen of earth
there is no ethnic group... we are all of human race
there is no greed, money maybe. It's not the problem
there is no hunger, because as Gandhi said there are resources for all
may look like not enough only becasue of the greed of someone
there is no war... because one only very small army represents all the world
no more deaths from preventable diseases, because the treatment is
immediately available to everyone without having to wait for the
expiry of the patent to lower costs
no more parties, but every day everyone vote and discuss general
guidelines and policies on..
there are no longer selfishness, the good is only that of all.
We consider the universal good and was happy to serve, not to be served

What More Could You Want
Emasculated and beaten the shell withdraws to a corner.
Nothing left to give no will to survive.
Battered and pained no wish to be alive.
Slowly the torture continues as you sit by,
With outstretched hands you await your reward.
The rape of a soul was not enough,
Killing a spirit was your goal.
On a platter to you a heart was delivered,
In hopes it would be cherished not torn apart.
Another fatal wound and innocence dies.
Stabbing, ripping the heart from its cavity.
The lies cut deep as the last remnant of life,
Splatters red with pained agony
and you collect your reward.
A trail of despair youve left in your wake.
The stench of greed follows your corrupt mind.
sucking the life from a body trying to cope.
waiting cause theres really no hope.
And greed becomes you.

Benefits of 1995 Fish Trash Policy
policy no policy
policy of indifference
policy of stupidity
now reaps rewards
use trash fish
policy as animal feeds
and in fish farming means
attractive to fishers
fishers of world oceans
policy bad policy
1995 one study
showed 27 million tonnes
of fish being discarded
every year but
2005 an investigation found
figure had dropped
only 7 million tones
did dropp not
off hot books
policy of greed
a Bermuda Triangle mystery?
a mystery of 20 million tonnes
20 million tonnes of missing fish?
20 million tonnes
were being sold
but control without
what hope in fisheries
of achieving sustainability
if we dont woe know what
is being caught?
time for television watch
sport big game fishing but
an estimated 90 per cent
of all large predatory fish
are gone totally fished out
greed humanity gills caught
partly because fish trash
part of food chain was never trash
what do you think big fish eat?
(Quotation is the poem Where Did All Large Game Fish Go? by Terence George Craddock)

A WORD TO PARASITES
A WORD TO PARASITES
Some spend themselves though never groan
Whilst Jesus' sheep they feed
They deem God's money not their own
Unlike some plagued with greed
Vampires peruse within God's house?
Devouring hoards of gold
Sucking blood like a canine louse
Whilst scriptures are unrolled
While sheep in faith stretch forth their hand
In gratitude and love
With offerings with tithes as planned
By He who reigns above
Yet parasites in pompous frock
Who bumper crops would reap
Intermingle with Heaven's flock
Fleecing The Father's sheep
They've earned they say because they teach
The gold and silver's theirs
Stealthily cool and like a leach
They'll plunder Heaven's wares
For building up a church supreme
For greed or personal fame
They'll eat the fat and drink the cream
Without a trace of shame
With fancy jets and lavish cars
With lucre massed in hand
Like rich Hollywood movie stars
They cruise most every land
Have these been saved or still deceived?
They thrive as common tare
Too blind to know The Lord God's grieved
Or even fail to care.....
