Have you more or less discovered
That less is sometomes more ?
Can you ignore an empty promise
Or do you rush back to the store ?

In a "have it all now world"
Can you resist the urge to splurge?
Or as one possessed by demons
Set your bank account on "purge" ?

Does the allure of shiny objects
Test your resolve to find it lacking ?
Could you amass more useless stuff
With more financial backing ?

Do you still worship at the temple
Of the sign that says for sale ?
Is "one-upping" the Jones'
Your holiest of grails ?

Fear not , for you shall know the truth
Though it may not set you free .
At least you're not the only one
That's facing bankruptcy !
