Root of Evil

Good things come
to those who take them
and greed wins out
as evil runs from root to stem.

Only the good die young
in a slow and painful way
while evil lives forever,
healthy every day.

The poison seeps in deep
as virtue can not last
with every choice you make,
the simple die is cast.
