Enough - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Yes, two will sometimes quite nicely do
But what ensues when you're through
A yearning for more comes to be
And suddenly you want three
The third leads to desire for more
Before you know it, you have four
But four will not keep you alive
So now you itch for number five
It snowballs quickly and then
Doubles, leaving you with ten
At this rate, you must admit
Soon your needs are infinite
So when all is said and done
I'll be satisfied with one

    What you said last is wisdom. Human wants have no end. They keep increasing. (10) (Report) Reply
