Don’t build a monster to devour you

You have to be careful;
You don’t build a monster;
He will turn around
And devour you.
Have you seen the fellow
Who is drunk
Without a taste of alcohol?
I have;
He is so eccentric;
What makes him drunk?
You, sure, find it bizarre;
Money!
He’s drunk of money;
He drinks money as wine;
And that makes him whimsical;
Haven’t you heard about him?
He loves money to a fault;
Maybe love isn’t strong enough;
That should not be
The right word;
I should say he ‘adores’ money;
Yes, he adores money;
Maybe worships is best;
He worships money;
When you listen to him
All that he talks is money;
No matter what you say,
He hears money;
He values money more
Than human beings;
So capricious!
Rather than lose money,
He’ll prefer to lose people;
If people die,
Even in their numbers,
He doesn’t care a pinch;
Take a disaster;
Or any other tragic event,
He won’t weep;
Because he doesn’t care;
It doesn’t matter to him;
But let him lose a mite;
He will be inconsolable.
Tell me
What to call such a freak;
A brute or a human being?
Would you have him
For your leader?
Hmmmmm! Tyrant!
Unless you’re odd like him;
Wayward like him;
Brute like him;
Wicked like him;
Tyrant like him,
You can’t like him;
Greedy leader he’ll be;
He can only rule by his whims
And caprices.
Dictatorship;
This is what happens
If we allow money to enter
Our head.
Watch out for people who worship money.
Don’t ever let them have a taste of power.
They will do what they like;
Break the rules;
Trample on people;
Kill at will;
And only God can call them to order.
Don’t built a monster!
If you built a monster,
How will it not devour you?
If it’s sinking,
It will sink with you.
