Sofia Kioroglou, Greece

He that is greedy..

Woe to those who get evil gain for their house
and put their nest on high.
You greedy narcissists, who will
deliver you from the hand of calamity?

Woe to those who have looted
for they will be looted.
He that is greedy troubles his own house
Didn’t you know that pride comes before a fall?

Woe to those who are like wolves,
tearing their prey and building their palaces by injustice
Though they build their nest as high as the eagle’s,
from there, their cupidity will bring them down.
