THE GREED OF MAN

How stately and magnificently the eagle flies,
As it soars and circles high up in the sky;
Crossing boundaries without a hitch,
Without passports and visas!
Boundaries are imaginary walls of division,
To mark our claim of land, space and possession;
Why lay claims when these do not belong to us?
They are Nature’s and is owned by God!
Because of greed, Man begins to grab and steal,
From Nature who gives freely to everyone,
To share with his fellow-men,
Not to be claimed as his and his alone!
