Greed


Greed, a greater impact than giving,
sure you can give everything away.
But someone may be lying,
greed and giving will always stay.

Greed, it may steal everything you just gave,
greed for power will and has to start the worst war.
The guilt will last until the grave,
because it isn't very far.

Greed will cause problems,
but we will live through them.
These are our emblems,
that will grow in our hearts, from a seed to a stem.

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
