GREED (A POEM WRITTEN BY DR OLUYEMI)

*Greed*

Monster with a hydra-head,
Grasshopper on the society’s field,
Sucking and draining our wealth,
And storing it far away from earth,
Getting far more than can be spent,
Stealing too much than can be eaten.

Gross mental retardation,
That makes a child eat till he vomits,
And a man drink than he can allow.
That makes one bite big and chew nought,
And another carry more than he can bear,
Greed,the menace of all days.

Common madness,general insanity.
Error in the inner man’s adjustment,
Desire for more than the greatest portion,
When the work for half hasn’t been done.
Greed,the troubler of our time,
The menace of all days.
