Stop this greed and pride

Greed and pride,
Two evils
That place the world
On a danger list;
Greed and pride
Eating deep
Into human hearts;
The desire
To have the best
Each
For themselves,
To enjoy the best,
Caring nothing
About the rest;
The desire
To be honoured;
Hailed;
If not adored
By fellow humans;
The vaulting ambition
To be great;
To enter the annals of history;
Forgetting
That all is vanity;
Nothing but vanity;
Empty air
That soon melts
Like snow
At sun rise.
Vanity of vanity.
Let us be honest;
Let us stop
This greed and pride.
