The (in)famous five


lust
anger
jealousy
hatred
and
greed

are the (in) FAMOUS FIVE who almost always contempt breed
whenever  one comes, the  others are not far behind
they beckon each other
and obediently fall in line.

though harmless love and Desire 
are the parents wanting to achieve.
They want to see their progeny
with  success,and prosperity proceed.


A lonely child is greed
almost always  the first born.
And  jealousy is given birth
So that  greed is not forlorn.

But anger when it comes
as  it almost always follows suit
takes it upon himself to see that his siblings go through.
It spits venom  like a snake ,bringing  hatred in its wake.

Then there is Lust
which  between desire and love is torn ,
he is that youngest child
who wanted to be born.

And  together
all these siblings strive very very hard.
They  work at crushing  life
which very justly gets upset and appalled.

Life retaliates and struggles, fighting a war for  survival.
But not always does good ,over evil survive
 some times it succeeds
but mostly gives in to those DEADLY FIVE .

The question to be asked is
will righteousness ever get its due?
how long  will we deny practising, that, which is true ?
should we  let the earth  and its  journey
towards destruction and death continue.??
