    Greed & Love


    She is the venom swelling dwelling in this land
    She has the soul of the people twisted in her command
    She tours through pores like a virus seeking out everyone
    Never stopping, cause her work is never done
    She is the root of all evil in all people invading everywhere
    Determined to capture you in her rapture her tricky snare
    Nothing seems to stop her once she enters your soul
    Her common goal is to change your character have you play a new role
    A vulture within all cultures killing us all
    Man, woman, youth truth is she’ll make anyone fall
    She is the strain of the American Dream
    Power and respect is her essential theme
    Her name is money

    He is the toxic desire in the atmosphere here we breathe
    Choking our mind to believe
    It’s o.k. To receive
    More than we need
    The most common disease
    That flows through our veins
    Secretly invades like AIDS causing sorrow and pain
    He prays on those with wealth
    Materialistic in self
    He is driven by egotistical creatures
    Superiority and authority are his teachers
    He been around town time after time since before we began
    Before this was a nation, he drove people to this land
    Created slavery to keep people in poverty
    Black men, women, and children living as somebody’s property
    He is sneaky hard to detect in oneself
    But I can see him clearly in everyone else
    Government
    Corporations
    Society
    A variety of situations
    I see him in churches
    And banks
    In my neighbor
    Clearly in military ranks
    Excessive in needs
    His name is greed

    Together they corrupt humanity
    Create tomorrow’s sorrow's and insanity
    Greed and money
    sin's milk and honey
