You are a shadow, an empty conceited being.
Your promises are lofty, your deeds worth a farthing!
Your pleasures dwell in avarice, your desires full of malice!
You enjoy your neighbour’s despair, you mean little disgusting player!
You want everything to consume, while for them, you have no room
in your palatial mansion of a hollow dream.
You vain little devil’s scream!
You fake your belief in God, and make them believe in you,
God watches from a distance as pride and vanity seep through
your skin that’s coarse to the core, your heart filled with cravings galore
Cravings for wealth and riches alike, cravings for more!
You smile at their misfortune, for you have been saved from the pain
You forget the impending gloom,
That it always pours, and never does it rain!
You turn away the poor
And wriggle at the sight of a stray
Though they approach with hopeful eyes,
You look the other way.
Little do you realize, O human! Nothing lasts forever
While you now rejoice at your pleasures
This will all end together!
Someday you will pine
For a helping hand or a smile,
But none will come forward
For everyone has their time!
Your pleasures will rot and decay
Your plastic face of clay
Today you might live another day,
for doom isn’t far away!
