Songs of Albinor No. 11
"Bane of Men"

By Marcus Pan

Glittering brightly,
Beneath the sun.
Raising slightly,
The hopes of some.

Shining gems,
And coins of gold.
Greed it lends,
And minds are sold.

Perilous journeys,
In search of wealth.
Endless tourneys,
And thieves of stealth.

Stealing lives,
And taking jewels.
Sharpened knives,
And blood in pools.

Gold and gems,
Are evil's seed.
The bane of men,
And breeder of greed.
