Greed

December 31, 2008
By Jessica Traphagan, Yuma, CO

They grab at the money
they hunger for the green
the reason why they do it
is one we can't explain

An infinite longing
for something that they yearn
still so unaware
of the lessons left to learn

Not caring what's ahead
not concerned with their pride
all worry in their head
is for the secrets that they hide

Whatever it takes
no matter the cost
they do it for them
to make up what they lost

Time and time
they'll do it again
until they find
there's nothing left to win

It pulls them apart
it ruins their lives
but greed is the thing
they need to survive
