Poetry Day: Avaritia

Greed from Fullmetal Alchemist

(Another personification of an emotion poem.  I remember being excited about finding the Latin word for ‘Greed’.)

Humanity has evolved to suit my needs.
I am primeval.


Cities have been built to my glory.
I am monumental.


People have been crushed by my influence.
I am addictive.


Those that deny me are forced to toil in vain.
I am valuable.


Society will always keep me alive.

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
