Poems of LENT
Need? Want? Desire? Craving?
Are these stages of Greed?Since day one we all have a natural needFor the basics of life which must be metThen come things we would want to get
Normal reaction to the goodness of lifePosessions Positions to gain without strifeTo be inspired by another’s successCan be a plan for those with much less
Desire and craving are not just a dreamThey can be part of life’s schemeThe path is there for all to travelSetbacks puzzles to unravel
The key to life’s questIs work. WORK and do your bestEnvy is jealousy at its worstYour hopes and dreams it will burst
Next step down is GreedFrom which you can’t be Freed
GreedSomewhere 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
