The Price of Greed!


If Hell is where the devil dwells and Angels fear to tread.
Then we are all just zombies in the land of the dead.

Greed destroyed us all and led to our demise.
We turned our back on love, the poor we did despise.

Wars became the tool that led us to this end.
An enemy we made out of what was once a friend.

Who can say we’re good when evil we embraced?
The plaque of human kindness was brutally defaced.

Silently we strode to the chamber of our death.
No whisper did we utter, nor did we take a breath.

We marched in mindless fashion down into the grave.
Defeated without mercy, no white flag could we wave.

Heaven does not wait for us, no pearly gates we’ll see.
If only we had known, greed paid the exit fee.
