A more honest version of the shepherd psalm

Mammon is my shepherd; I shall always want more.
He gives me no rest; he makes me to always desire greener pastures and more dangerous waters.
He gives me emptiness and leads me in paths that offer shiny and exciting things to fill that emptiness.
But when I come to the valley of the shadow of death, he abandons me to my fears; wealth and luxury give no help nor comfort there.
Though I have what I need, he shows me that others have more and better than I.
Surely envy and greed shall follow me all the days of my life: and I don’t want to think of what may be after that.
[Who is your shepherd?]
