 Poems of LENT

Need?   Want?  Desire?   Craving?

Are these  stages of Greed?
Since day one we all have a natural need
For the basics of life which must be met
Then come things we would want to get

Normal reaction to the goodness of life
Posessions Positions to gain without strife
To be inspired by another’s success
Can be a plan for those with much less

Desire and craving are not just a dream
They can be part of life’s scheme
The path  is there for all to travel
Setbacks puzzles to unravel

The key to life’s quest
Is work. WORK and do your best
Envy is jealousy at its worst
Your hopes and dreams it will burst

Next step down is Greed
From which you can’t be Freed

Somewhere it is writ and I believe I did read.
That this world wouldn't function if it wasn't for greed.

All men of peace; And this is a fact,
Have been feared by the mighty and put to the rack.
Whether to be stoned by a mob or nailed to a tree.
The mighty allow this. How can this be?

When a man of peace is considered a threat.
The final solution is to put him to death.
Then; deny that it happened and try to forget.

It may be they fear, for men to be freed.
For this would limit their unsatisfied greed
