Go Away Greed


You are unseen but also captured
In minds of many you are featured,
You divert the child well nurtured,
On grazing by you animals are pastured.

Watching the innocent baby new born
You wait and hide to catch with turn,
While child grows little you blow horn
He starts telling things are my in morn.

You are just like colour changing lizard,
You fill in man really negative wizard.
In minds of many you do bring blizzard,
Fishes and birds enter food to gizzard.

By getting you animals loose a steer,
Birds fly with tending to fall with fear,
They fall in confusion who live in sheer,
You motivate for crime and sticks smear.

You do spoil life oh go away oh greed
People fight for hand of land, and seed.
Please do not stay for negative breed,
People are with God now and in creed.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

"Although you are unseen you are captured oh Greed. You are featured in minds of many. You divert the well nurtured child. By you on grazing animals are more motivated for eating more. Watching the innocent new born baby, you with turn wait and hide to catch him. You blow your horn while child grows a little bit. Even in morning he starts telling that all things are my, means his only by impact of you. Like a colour changing lizard you are. In many you fill negative magical power of cheating and doing wrong things. You bring storm like severe snowstorm with high wind in minds of many. To their muscular stomach fishes and birds make entry of more and more food materials. Animals loos a guiding mind of controlling by getting you and they do without direction whatever they wish. By your impact birds fly with fear of tending to fall down. Who even live in completely right path, they fall in confusion while you appear. You stick to them like greasy or sticky mark and motivate them towards crime. Really you spoil life. Oh greed you go away. Because of your presence people fight for only a hand of land and for even a seed. For your negative breed you please do not stay here. Now people are with God and they are in a system of religious belief or faith. That is why you Greed, kindly go away from humanity." This is the theme of this poem. This is written in Odisha, India and dedicated to the people of the world.

    Thanks for sharing your passionate poem, Bhargabi.

    The theme is always present, but even more so after what we've learned a few days ago by Oxfam.

    Shameful is a system where the rich become every minute richer, and the poor, on the contrary, poorer..

    This is exactly the picture Oxfam International has just shown us: “Richest 1% have seen their share of global wealth increase from 44% in 2009 to 48% in 2014 and (at this rate) will be more than 50% in 2016″.

    Not only, of the remaining 52% of global wealth, almost all (46%) is owned by the rest of the richest 20% of the world’s population.

    While the other 80% of humankind share just 5.5% of global wealth, and the gap between the richest and the rest is widening fast!

    I have written a poem on the same theme: ''WAX AND WANE'' - a poem about SIN AND GREED, in the globalized economy of our time..

    Thanks for sharing! (Report) Reply

    Greed is the route cause of all vices that a materialistic life can bring in. As a poet you have deep insight into human life, you have identified the impact of the evil of greed. A poem that is very powerful enough to cast a feel of reading for enlightenment. Madam, I award 10 marks for this fine write. (Report) Reply
