Greed

If power argued with money

I wonder who would win

I find it rather funny

Like arguing with a twin

For both have equally

Corrupted all they touch

Vying so instinctively

All things we want so much

Principals all set aside

And character lacking

We gather both with great pride

Sending scruples packing

The worst of anything to seek

Wanting more than has another

Do we climb to mountain peak

Just to stand above our brother

Power calls to us as if free will

But grants no greater life replete

Greenbacks blessed mother still

When others have nothing to eat

Aye that these two to death would fight

Ending in a rare fatal tie

Our world would be made much more right

If greed in society could die

      Thank you kindly Ms. Harley! And thank you for commenting. I must say that reading one of your posts today fueled me to write a poem regarding the truth behind the Dom/sub relationship. Hopefully I will have the fortitude to post it someday!

    Very true! This was beautifully written.
    โ€œBut those who are determined to be rich fall into temptation and a snare and many senseless and harmful desires that plunge men into destruction and ruin. For the love of money is a root of all sorts of injurious things, and by reaching out for this love some have been led astray from the faith and have stabbed themselves all over with many pains.โ€ (1 Timothy 6:9,10)
