Greedy Man

Greedy Man

1 min 190 1 min 190

He grabbed the gold with gross ghoulish greed,

People were watching, but he took no heed.

His gluttony simply knew no checks or bounds

Unabashedly, in eating, he stood his ground.

His greed grew like an ugly cancerous growth

Annihilating him and burning up all his worth

He didn’t know that he was heading for doom,

A disastrous future for him within days did loom.

The policeman came with a chain and handcuff

The doctor opined his sickness was truly tough

He sobbed and he wept, he religiously swore

He would not be greedy in his life evermore.
