Greed is a plague rampant in the world.
Need we not say the rage that is apparent as greed unfurled.
Friend pitched against friend in this endless desire.
In the end is there anyone that we can depend in a world where greed is something to aspire.
Selfless ends are gone, even when we lend there is a cost attired.
Why is it we simply need food, water and housing.
Yet people are still dousing their selfish desire upon the earth.
The steeple arousing prayer yet what is it's worth.
When pain is the format that humanity unearths.
Manifesting a plague upon this temporal realm.
We can contest this vague sense of success, take morality by the helm.
One action of kindness can be a ripple in a pond.
Inaction may lead to the world as we know it to be gone.
So, take the time to smile at your neighbour.
For they may be next to meet greed's sabre.
And then it may be you victim to the plague.
So, take your time to indulge in kindness.
For this is the cure, it will be imitated and make the world pure.
Call me a idealistic fool.
