Tentacles of Power (When a Good Man turns Greedy)

Greed like the endless sea
Corrupts a man like a wooden ship
Power like the pounding waves
Erodes even the solid virtues
Humans have gone a long way
History keep repeating itself
Visionaries overpowers the meek
From the caveman to modern times
Hunger of man for supremacy
Cannot be bound by the vast galaxy
Contentment can never be achieved
Like the vacuum of space, beyond measure

"I have known a friend who grew up like a saint and witnessed him being sucked and distorted by the Tentacles of Politics."
