Some lust for power, covet shaming another, feed off anger and ire.
Some desire control, step on laws, trample all, heed no call but their gall.
Some relish what’s cruel, find odd joy in the crude, equate strength with the rude.
In their greed to succeed, they maim truth, cripple fact
And attack anyone who attempts to talk back.
But fear not:
Lust turns old
Greed grows cold
Lies don’t hold.
In the end, it’s foretold:
Truth takes root
Hearts bear fruit
Life’s real gold.
