What Most See As Most Important

What most see as most important not all that it does seem
They swear by fame and money as being good for their self esteem
Material things serve the ego the ego in us all
And the ego is a thing of pride and pride comes before a fall
If money made people happy there would not be an unhappy millionaire
Though many wealthy people do seem burdened by care
'Tis true that greed breeds more greed and much always wants more
And one might say these are things that we've often heard before
Most of the very wealthy people are not laughing all day long
Whilst in the bathroom showering they do not burst into song
So many wealthy people even find it hard to smile
And some of them even wonder is living life worthwhile?
They swear by fame and money as being good for their self esteem
But what most see as most important not all that it does seem.

Don't Tell Me About It

Don't tell me about it life can be unfair
The homeless and paupers have never been rare
In the refugee camps of the World millions of refugees
The victims of hunger and war and disease
Don't tell me about it I already know
That where weeds are abundant the grass does not grow
'Tis a near and impossible climb to success and renown
For those who are born and raised in the poor side of town
The landscape around us destroyed by men of greed
Those who worship money are not a rare breed
Where pollution is rife there is only decay
For the greed of the greedy we all have to pay
Don't tell me about it I already know
That the seed of a parsnip into a carrot doesn't grow.

Our Great Nation...

The extent of the greed of mankind, is sickeningly depressing,

for a person would rather fill their wallet, than give a single blessing,

care, compassion, and sympathy, are now far beyond our sight,

we have lost focus on all kindness, and what is wrong or right,

the sheer audacity of mankinds greed is evident in many,

for a man would surely cut you down, for the chance at one more penny,

and a man would do anything, to reach the peak of wealth,

even abandon all of his friends, or damage his own health,

even knowing that he will eventually pay the cost,

he will not feel as though he has lost,

for that simple reward of a heightened pay,

would get him through that gloomy day,

it saddens me to know the truth, but i am not suprised,

for after witnessing this abomination, i have promptly realized,

that the reason why the world we live in, is so increasingly spoiled and rotten,

is the fact that all acts of human kindness, have been utterly forgotten...

His For To Destroy

That he does not love Nature seems such a sad thing
The one who never admires the wildflowers of the Spring
With Land for Wildlife he could never agree
He sees Land for Development as a better idea
He could not recognize a starling from a crow
And anything of Nature's ways he does not wish to know,
He reckons greenies of progress are standing in the way
And not one good thing of them he does have to say
he has made millions out of land development but greed leads to more greed
And for to build more houses more land he does need
Last year he made two million in profit this year he wants four
'Tis the same old story much always wants more
Making millions from land development is a thing he enjoy
And he feels Mother Earth is his for to destroy.
