The poem describes the affect the love of riches can do to a person life. In their quest to attain it they make it their god.

O cursed Riches!
You do make begging gods of man
whom have corrupted the pure waters
     and fertile land
For all their purposes
     and pursuits,
they have sprung the deadly root
To them, from heaven seemed
until it corrupted their chaste beams
O paradise!
they thought,
on their fantasies feasted
til they became like a savage beast
And like a brute their lust sprang
  as they hung
their thirsty tongues
which dripped their lusty sweat
when their imaginations got too fat
and bowed for all to see
when they sacrificed their lives
to thee
