The love of money, the root of all evil,
Eating the soul like a ravenous weevil.
Many are consumed by lust for more.
Accumulated mammon rotting the core.
The motto of life, with hiss and a spit,
“Get all you can and can all you get”.
Tear down old barns, no need for replevin.
While decreasing the odds of entering heaven,
A parable with camel, Jesus did mention,
The aim of the story this pointed intention.
The chances of heaven are summed by this creedal:
“It would be easier to poke its eye with a needle”.
