Fool and Greed


I still have my very great debt to pay;
Oh! I don't have money anyway,
But I have luxurious stuff- a lot -
Bought with that loan.
Now, they need to be sold
In order to pay my debt,
And hence, I have nothing left.

I used to be a happy man indeed,
But now, I'm sad because of my greed.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
