Gods of Greed, Gods of Gold: Some new, Some old.

Lust for gold, dreaming,
scheming tales of wealth and coin
lure conquistadores west,
beneath the blood-red sun.

Theirs by sword, theirs by might. 
Theirs by right and miter.  
Lusting after golden gods, 
gilt beyond the blood-red sun, 
now -- and forever.
