Beget, Regret, Disloyal Sway...

Beget, regret disloyal sway...
Beyond all greed, of greed, this day.

Manly greed, stings all men...
Be this one, the one's, all sin.

How frozen, be man's left, unpardoned, guilt...
Of all the men, and woman's, blood, spilt.

Delay, the guilt, leased life...
Pray up to God, for less strife.
Michael Gale

Wallow In The Greed

If you could know how much I make,
I'm sure to see you blush!
To reap the stipend that I do
Will mean, therefore, I look at you
From high above in my success
And say to you, 'Poor thing, God bless.'

The greedy bastard that I am -
I love to drown in bling;
Unlike you so bloody poor, and
Picking coins up off the floor!
But sorry mate, I'm not to blame
The fact your bank account is lame!

Come and see my flashy car
Awash inside with leather;
I saw the battered wreck you drive,
Spewing out its oily smog!
Your banger, friend, is such a dog,
Clanking out its dialogue.

I shall die in gleaming wealth,
Floating out in gentle stealth
Having bought a glowing health.
As for you, my hard-up mate,
You'll fade away a slave to fate,
Surviving on the welfare state.

Greed, greed, greed, greed
Greed, greed, feed the greed.

The greed of the 21st century
Upon humanity seen, near and far
Financial institutions fallen
Corporations shaken
Greed taken hold of human souls

Greed, too much for a few
The middle falling out,
The bottom melting to sunder
Greed, taking a hold of humanity
Boldly, greater and greater
The system is waning

Greed, in nations of the world
People with much, look away,
People with the least nourishment
Paying more and more
Will someone help to arrest
The cause of greed?
Will the greedy give something back?

Raise your voices not only to
Joyful encounters, stand up
Be counted with those who
Painfully goes to bed, hungry,
Wake up in despair,
Lend a hand, you who have much,
Help to eradicate greed!
One world humanity lives,
Your time to help is now!

A Tall Throat

Greed lives in the
World ancient and new
It was greed for amala
That gave the dog its black nose
From touching the hot type
It was greed that
Blinded the antelope's eye.

It was greed that balded
The goat's knee
From squating to steal
In a farmer's barn
Greed is the bane
Of my country's development
From the affluent few
Reaping from our humming rigs
Of oil installation
Onshore and offshore.

It is greed
That kills a crowd
Of excited people
About a loaded tanker
Of motorized spirit
Swallowed by flames
In an accident scene
And greed is
Always at last a regret!
