Theme: Avarice

Greed and Avarice

Then he shared a one bedroom home
With his parents and three siblings,
Yet was enough space left for guests
With a lot of camaraderie and care.

Now he owns a five bedroom house
One room each for self, two children,
Occasionally visiting parents and guests
Yet always cribs about inadequate space.

Well, greed and avarice indeed
Render us devoid of sensitivity
They split apart our family ties
And destroy our relationships.
