Suzy is a greedy girl,

Who always wants some more.

Forever a new toy, never the old,

The old is such a bore.


Tommy is getting quite so big,

He never did say no.

Cake and sweets and apple pies,

In his mouth; they go.


Anna is a greedy kid,

Who always gets so cross.

When she isn’t the one in charge,

For Anna is the boss.


Mary has a thousand books,

All so pretty on her shelf.

And she has read every single one,

Even the ones she wrote herself.


And in the end, don’t we all?

Have wants we can’t ignore?

For we humans are a greedy bunch,

It makes us strive for more.
