When you were born with no retention,
The love you received was your permission,
But as you grew, you looked and craved,
And all to soon became enslaved
The more you saw the more you wanted
Your quest for more became undaunted
Our thirst for more could not be satisfied
The more you grasped, the tighter you clenched
You scampered and gathered and gathered to hoard
Possessions became your master and lord
And when you’re old without treasures all heaped
A sad example of what greed has reaped
Your greediness is still clenched
Until your death your hands are still opened
Because all your desire in life is possession
And became your obsession
