Haiku...Devil’s Disciple...Greed


Greed eats the soul, wastes
Life, naked, penniless that’s
Heavens entrance fee


Hell has no pity
Naked soul-less with greed that’s the
Devil’s entrance fee

    Heaven and Hell together make
    Our lives here a tight rope walk
    Even if fear of the Devils open gate
    Or in anticipation of St Peter's talk

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
