Endless Needs

Rating: 5.0
A slaking glass of water for the thirsty
Is the radical essence of survival;
But for the drowning loser, a travesty
Of complex human needs and wants rival

Fire unduly ignited , can scorch and char
As it may enliven, warm-up and comfort;
A hungry morsel that feeds , by far
Sates better than a feast of grand sort

A desired toy for a craving child
Means infinite pleasure to possess,
As the grown-up are lost in the wild,
Pursuing impulsive wants which obsess

The Space is remote and infinite at large;
While Sanity holds back and asks to bar,
Diffused vain pursuits get lost in the surge ;
The inner dictator, if well-taught, will mar ;

How eerie and endless are human needs
Every fulfilled one , a new one breeds......!
