Envy Not - Poem


Envy Not

Envy not the wealth of those

Who gained their wealth through theft

Who stole their riches from the poor

Who preyed upon more honest men

And left them all bereft

They spun themselves a web of lies

To steal from who came near

But for them time is growing short

Their end I don't revere

For what good will their riches do

Six feet into the earth

When worms and mites and crawly things

Deny them their rebirth?

Headless corpses they will be

When people turn to fight

And all the goods that they had stored

The fires will set alight

Soon will come their judgment day

For history repeats

This lesson they did not well learn

Up in their ivory seats

James 5:1-3

Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.

Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.

Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against

you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for

the last days.
