That's Greed

It’s embarrassing to say the least
When caught with their  pants down
With connivance they expect a feast
Determined to scrounge so profound

No qualms about making an assertion
Such poor taste one cannot readily fathom
When without batting an eyelid they fashioned
Ways and means to get even

Ways of the world are plain indeed
Outwitting the unsuspecting an unending form
Easy way out and fostered by greed
But it’ll catch up and backfire that’s the norm

 Written for 3WW with words embarrass, taste, and backfire


  1. outwitting the unsuspecting...sadly this is the way of the world...until they are caught pants down of course...smiles.

  2. Bri is right....

    Sending YOU Aloha
    from Honolulu,

  3. It always seems a good idea until one gets caught! Nice use of the words.

  4. I think the English expression is "To get one's comeuppance" meaning that you will reap what you sow. Some however will get away with it, alas. Thanks for your visit.

  5. I keep hoping to surround myself with people who are not like that so I won't keep get taken for a ride.

  6. Be nice if they were caught with their pants down and it was the other way around.
