There’s something that we must address
The world is in a lot of stress
Barely managing our mess
Can we try to live with less?
Yet some would never be deprived
Of things they want, won’t be denied
Not satisfied with nine-to-five
They’re not just looking to survive
Beyond the “norm” they will exceed
Possess more than they’ll ever need
Live by the motto: “Good is Greed”
A sin so full of vast misdeeds
One that hoards makes people wince
Who selfishly all pennies pinch
That will not share, nor give an inch
Whose idol is the heartless Grinch!
Yet is there time to turn life round?
To plant our feet firm on the ground?
And hope that common sense is found
So that in surplus we don’t drown!!
Contemplate with less comes more
Re-learning what we're living for
When free from greed our spirits soar
And a better life is what’s in store!
