Is it better
On the other
Side of the fence
Or just illusion?

I can imagine
And have experienced
Both on occasion…
A mixed bag &
Mixed outcomes

We should be satisfied
With what we have,
So they say…
Why do even the well off
Not see the truth in that?

We are an acquisitive species
Some plagued by greed…
What’s wrong with “just enough”?
It’s the definition of “to succeed”…
Isn’t it? Can’t we see?

    Well said Robert. And you raise a great point, some people don’t know the meaning of enough because they always want more.

      Thank you, Suzanne. We live in a time of extreme greed, when those with the most want all the rest, leaving all the rest struggling to survive. It’s immoral. The saddest part is when they try to justify it by proclaiming that their religion says that’s as it should be…contrary to any religion I’ve ever heard of.

        True…and despite all the claims that they create jobs, the fact is, only the rest of us can do that, by buying the goods. Those greedy ones can’t support an economy when they sit on their money. Good reason to reverse the tax benefits they’ve extorted worldwide.
