365 Poems in 365 Days: Avarice

A writing group suggested the seven deadly sins as a topic to write on for our next meeting. Seven things = seven poems for this project (or, in fact, more). My problem with this is I have this to say about these vices: They're okay in moderation, but don't take them to excess. Which is a little boring after you've said it 3 times and have 4 more to go, which is the stage I'm at as I post this. Anyway, number 129.

Vices are by their nature excessive
Which is clear when we consider avarice
A desire for wealth is not disgraceful
Unless cramming gold into a hoard already full
