“Variety is the spice of life”
And I half-heartedly agree.
Not that the buffet isn’t ample—
Quite the contrary!
But I’ve sampled enough to be selective
While he’s still eyeing the appetizers.
As he feasts his fill,
I savor the knowledge that
His plate does hold some substance
Among the empty calories.
Once gorged on quantity,
Indigestion will lead him toward quality;
Then he, too, will become selective.
But will there be anything left then?
