Greed

What is wrong with the world, indeed, In other words, how have we failed? The answer I give is "Greed." Society has to be freed From this path it has too long trailed, What is wrong with the world, indeed. Too many want more than they need, Why has this attitude prevailed? The answer I give is "Greed." Politicians are in the lead, Their avarice is thinly veiled, What is wrong with the world, indeed. Is it useless for me to plead That more restraint should be availed? The answer I give is "Greed." Must we uphold this selfish creed, I vote for it to be curtailed, What is wrong with the world, indeed, The answer I give is greed.
