Joseph’s Ode

Heart of Greed

There once was a young man

So forgotten and poor

Who’d been dirty and broken

Faced with death and pure horror

But that would very soon change

For a ticket was dropped in an alley way

The one where the poor boy currently stayed

And on the card read a three, three, three

They young man had just won the lottery

He became a millionaire

In the blink of an eye

Yet he was filled with greed

That would lead to his demise

He bought the biggest of houses

And ate the finest of foods

But he was greedy and selfish

And very much rude

Wanting more money he bet in poker

And with the money like rain it was too much to handle

Then the spark was ignited with an unlucky dice bramble

And the man paid the price one does when they gamble

So he was homeless and hungry

Due to his thirst for more

He was now a greedy man so forgotten and poor.
