Caution on Greed

 article about Caution on Greed

Enough is enough,


We say this when annoyed.


Do we say the same of riches,


Or enough is not enough?


Put Greed and Content,


In a boxing ring,


And what would we get,


Pray tell?


Well-


Greed will box Content out flat most,


That's what.


 


 


If I put a table full of dishes,


You may become a glutton,


Obese-


And perhaps die from heart disease.


The same can be said of greed in riches.


Too much or too little?


Both are evil-doers.


Use money well,


And all will be well,


And your life grandly tell,


In life's fickle foibles.
