When will you feel

That you have enough?

Do your drawers overflow

With all kinds of stuff?

How will you be truly

Happy, content?

Is there an amount

You need to have spent?

Which brand purses,

What style shoes?

The thrill of the hunt,

The freedom to choose.

The latest, the greatest,

Does the treadmill ever slow?

Will you ever get there

(And what will you have to show?)
