So many people living beyond there means
Those one's their so obsessed with greed
And there's those coming apart at the seam's                                       
The one's who would like to not want or need

When even now we have the rich and the poor
Those people who's only real concern is wealth
Those who just take everything right to the core
It now seems it's like every one for them self 

And what is it all about money power domination
Will there be a time we share the same residence
Whats funny were sleep walking into segregation
And still it's like were all these modern day peasants

When all those people who are just filled to the brim
But what could you say to them, your a greedy hog
If we then look at the world that we are now living in
It's just become something like that of dog eat dog  

I wanted to add extra verse and write as a sepret issue
Im sure a lot would relate to as seems also a current issue at this 
moment in time    ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,GREED

again the reason behind me questioning this is because theres still this giant devide 
between people the ritch get ritcher and the poor get pooer i think docters and nures should
get much more than footballers and polotisions i could go on and on but anyway this is another 
excert from poem idea seven ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
