MONEY


A treacherous and evil creature
If you stretch out your hand for it
It swallows you
If you desire it
You fall into its power

Oh money!
The roots of all evil
It does not prevent a man from becoming a fool
It does not prevent a man from becoming mad
Treated by everyman like he is God

Oh money!
Sacrifices made to it everyday
He made men sacrifice their wisdom
He made men sacrifice their compassion
He made men sacrifice their every virtue

Oh money!
For the love of money
Men forgets death and the last day
Men use money not to build but destroy
Men use money not to build their own town but rule it
Men use money not to help their people but buy them
Money!
He made men hoards their wealth instead of sharing
Oh money!

  1. when I was a child I see people change before my eyes just because of money, and I said to myself, it’s just a paper… oh well, now I can fully understand how people call it the vilest creature but still embraces it… Nice poem by the way! 😀
