  33.     

The murder most foul

The meanest murder minus of machete,
Overwhelming greed blamed, sole bleeding knife;
Who held the knife? Manic men of market?
Fair lady herself—too much freedom rife?
To save her skin she this defence did make:
Infidels do breed their own tragic ends—
Oft making markets seem a sad mistake;
But here she used her own barest of hands.

No darling; not in fear, ye died of hate,
In greed of growth I guess, guilt-edged progress,
And yet, ere ye fall to thine destined fate,
I blame less Lady Greed, more her excess.
If bleed ye must ye shall bleed not in vain,
Should greed be girdl’d, rein’d in to restrain!
__________________________________________________
This sonnet is in the form of allegorical satire
on the goings on of global market meltdown. The
sonnet’s structure takes its inspiration from Sir
Walter Raleigh’s ‘A secret murder hath been done
of late’.

  34.     

Greed Or Fame Isn't Everything

Tempted not by greed
for wealth attained by
false means
one maybe
guilty about it later.

Blinded not by fame
for what's in a name when
it's short-lived?

If greed and fame are within one's
reach
There's no point for anyone
doing a good deed at all
Life will be
meaningless if no-one puts his
heart and soul
to achieve something which he can be
proud of
The world will be full of
GREEDINESS
UNWORTHINESS
CONFUSION
DECEPTION
FAILURE
And that's bad

So why crave for greed or fame?

Better do whatever deed is
meaningful so as to
treasure
life
and appreciate the beauty of
life.

Neither greed nor fame is
glamourous forever
Concentrate on doing a
good deed to
earn
praise for
a good deed a day
will go a long Way.

COFFIN OF GOLD

All around its greed
More more more I need
If I have one I need more
I am not satisfied anymore

Not in my dream, I would share
Greed overtook me and I stopped to care
I am no longer satisfied with anything
Feel like owning everything

All the money in the world
Still greed tells me more and more
Where I will bury all these wealth
I have lost myself that’s the truth

Help me …to me they plead
Greedy I am to see them plead
What will I do with all these money?
Still more more more I need

Maybe I will have a coffin of gold
Stacked inside with paper money
Where will I take these after I die?
With open arms and in coffin I lie

No more can I hold anything
The truth to leave behind everything
Still I am filled with greed
More more more I need

  36.     

The Desert

What are we, without our make-believe breeding
Who am I, if it's not you that I'm feeling
We're out of time, no longer aligned
You lie resigned, my words; declined

Now what I need; just feels like greed...

What point is there, if this evening's dry
No sweat escaped, no sparkling eyes
Just some feed, followed by some sleep
You barely see what I dread to keep

But what I need; just feels like greed...

So when did it become
A party with no invitation
When were we locked out
Of the passionate celebration

Now what I need; just feels like greed...

How much longer will we walk here
In the blazing sun with no water
How much longer can I just lie here
This appetite, unsatisfied beside her

But what I need; just feels like greed...

(2007)
