Treasure Island

Sam Arjomandi


GREED IS THE BIGGEST THREAT TO OUR CIVILIZATION


Greed is the biggest threat to our civilization
It destroys families and it can bring down the nations

Greed is one of the most dangerous desires in human nature
It’ so bad that it can turn human to heartless creature

Greed is the source of financial and social trouble
If is not contain, it can turn earth to the ruble

Greedy person doesn’t believe in values and doesn’t feel guilty
Money to him is like salt water, as he drinks more he gets more thirsty

If human can control his greed
Then world become heaven, that’s what we really need
