Lustful Things

Updated on April 16, 2016
city
city

Give me this thing, give me that thing,
give me every God damn thing
Give me this shiny thing
Give me this round thing
Oh my, what is that thing?
It's so pretty, i need that thing
But look, i don't have enough money to buy that thing
If i can't have it i will surely die, i need that thing
I am going crazy, i can't leave here without taking that thing
The devil taps me on the shoulder and says to steal that thing
So i pull out my glock pistol, BANG BANG! now i got that thing
Someone lays lifeless on the floor, for a meaningless thing
Oh shit, someone has called the cops, now they chase me because of a very bad thing
I bolt from the crime scene, tripped over a fence and lost that very same thing
Now i am on the 8:00 o'clock news, they hunt for the guy who did that awful thing
Now my life is meaningless because of my lust and greed of wanting someone else's thing

The lady that works on the streets, why is she doing that thing
She has food, she has clothes, but she needs her hair done, a nice car and other lustful things
So the stock broker has ran off with millions of pensioners money, such a sad and disgusting thing
i heard he is in the Bahamas living the good life, properties, houses, cars and other man made things
They say money is the root of all evil, drugs, murder, sex, human trafficking, forced control and many other devious things
Then the Government sends millions to kill the innocent to control oil and tells the media they did no such thing
Why does mankind always wants something
Why is he not satisfied with his own thing
There is no arrow pointing to hope, nor prosperity, Christianity, Islam are fighting their own demons, dealing with their own things
But i hope one day our minds will be elevated, our souls cleansed, and no one will ever need these lustful things
So i ask of this of you my father, take me up and place my soul in heavenly things
For this Earth as scorched my spirit, and i wish no more to be apart of these dreadful things.

      What a crazy world it is ! Everyone after one thing or the other and to usurp that by hook or crook. Clive, you portrayed all that so brilliantly. Good work, my friend.

      @Jodah, i can tell you that 80% of what the world makes is not a need, just a want for somthing. Waste of resources. Leads to greed and crime

      We are in a society where we don't really need anything, but want everything...maybe because ours is a year old so we need the newest thing, maybe because the neighbours have a better thing than us..maybe we just want to say we have one of those things even though we may never use it. Good thing, Clive..oh, I mean hub.

      @alwaysexploring, the world is filled with have nots and a few haves. Men has always glorified things which are of no value to the spirit. things which cause our own soul to hurt.

      Yes Eric, many times if we stopped to think about all the things we "believe" we need we would actually realize we do not need them. It's all about wanting more and more and a little more

      Greed is closely associated with lust. Nice exposition in this hub. Interesting

      Wonderful story about greed and lust. Today it is worse than I could of ever imagine. There is little regard for the poor if any, people are just hanging on. This was a really great hub and I will share it.

      That was really well done. Makes one stop and think about the need for things.

      Why is it that man has to have all these thingy thing things?

      Is it because he is lustful and cares not what hurtful things he brings?

      Or is it because he has never been denied or never let lose of his mother's strings.

      Kids are brought up, wanting everything and given everything. Then there's the other kind that had nothing and wanting what they never had, and that person will just about do anything to obtain whatever. It's the society we live in today. Few have it all and many have nothing. Crime is on the rise here in America because of the ' haves and have-nots ' You wrote a chilling tale that's played out here daily. Great message on greed...
