once I have
all I can get
I’ll still want more
and more

and yet

the stuff I have
I must ignore
to have the time
to find some more

to stash
with what it is I got
so there’ll be nothing
I have not

and when I have
all that there is
I’ll sit back
and say

gee wiz

I’m not certain
this is all
there is

though what I have
is gathering dust
and some perhaps
is gathering rust

I’ll search for more

because I must
