Greed and Avarice


There is a family of farmers,
Who owns a vast land of thousand acres;
Of money and wealth they are rich
Power and influence- no longer they beseech.

Gaining fortune is their way of life,
Between siblings there is a strife.
Love and concern no longer exist,
For they were replaced with avarice.

Penniless relatives they do not recognize,
The wealthy ones they despise;
Fortune and wealth they want on their own
The richest people, they want to be known.

Greedy, rapacious, these people are;
The others, they do not want to go far.
Contentment is never on their minds,
They take everything and leave others behind.

There is a family of farmers,
Who owns a vast land of thousand acres;
Selfish and greedy they may be,
But still they are so dear to me.

This is for all the members of the family of farmers....

Do you really have to plant just for yourselves....???? I mean, you can share your harvest to people also...

Stop treating each others like there is this dog-eat-dog competition among yourselves...

Time flies by so swiftly..., and you'll never know where you will be after this life...
