भोजप्रबन्ध - तृष्णा

प्रायो धनमतामेव धने तृष्णा गरीयसी |
पश्य कोटिद्वयासक्तं लक्षाय प्रवणं धनुः ||

- भोजप्रबन्ध

Normally those who have a lot of wealth are the ones greedy for more. Look at the person who has two crores, he still wants a lakh more. This verse is a play on words. The two ends of a bow is also known as koti (a crore). The target is known as laksha (a lakh).
