The story of Greed


The story of Greed

My sermon pertains to greed
The being that leads
Humanity to harm each other
Every sister and brother
It all began with greeds big brother
Called jealousy and his sister betrayal
They taught greed all he knows
That envy and selfishness bestows
the best for oneself
So he only sought to only act for himself
He grew up
And began to make up stuff
In order to toy with the humans
With every trick they began to zoom in
To their inner evil
One day at a repravail
There laid greed’s toy tom
that greed delayed all harm
Se Till he saw an enormous beast of a man
Then a plan began
Greed decided to start a new game
He saw that Tom wanted out
From his drought
In lack of money that caused him trouble
And turned his life into rubble
He saw a tree with no eye catching traits
But seemed liked a gift from the fates
For it had a sign for new beginnings
But then came Sam the beast grinning
In his hands laid the solution to all of tom’s problems
A pot filled with money shaped like a goblin
Greed peered over and saw what was happening and
Tripped Tom into Sam who became stunned
Tom thought to himself i’m a good person
And my fate can’t be worsened
So he asked Sam to sit down
And to talk about the town
Tom districted Sam
and he did the best he can
He told Sam about his adversities in life
And how his wife left him because of his strife
Sam felt pity for Tom
His strife was with gambling and being calm
Sam thought of ways to get the pot
So he pondered and thought
That he would share a meal with Sam
Till he got out of this jam
Tom wanted sams money
So he poisoned the honey
But little did he know that Sam wanted his chain
Because it was all to blame
The beast Sam’s wife wanted such jewels
And he would break all the rules
They both thought to harm one another
The beasts plan was to kill the other
Greed saw this and laughed for they both are fools
And they would do anything for jewels
Greed saw that Sam killed Tom
And Tom killed Sam
Sam strangled Tom and when Tom was gone
Sam then died by the honey
So no one had the money
Nor the chain
For they were both the blame
For their fates
As they are deaths dates
Greed says that he is brings out the evil in others
Cause he finds it best to be the root of evil and its colors
That all in fun for him that it only does harm to those that succumb to it
