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

Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
