Wall Street Wealth Addicts

What far too many people fail to realize

The addiction of wealth is just as serious

as cocaine or gluttony, just more civilized

Wall Street watches constantly, imperious

They snatch away vulnerable loved ones

Replacing love and family with greed

Million dollar bonuses are veiwed as reruns

They're not given near as much as they "need"

They're hooked on money, though they don't know

Their fortunes mean less to give to others

The more they take, the less they can grow

for the allmighty dollar, they swindle their brothers

If we begin to treat it like a condition of heart

Less families could be torn apart
