Greed is Good

“Greed is good!” they say
Some say “Greed is great!”
Will they say that when the masses
Are bashing down their gate?
Will they still pray to their god ‘Greed’
When they find that it’s too late?

All the starving children
They don’t think greed is good
They would rather have each day
A sufficiency of food

All the freezing homeless
How great is greed to those?
A bit of tin to shelter in
Would please them (I suppose)

What good is greed to anyone
When it is served with hate?
I’d rather have a shred of humanity
Sitting on my plate
