I searched all morning for food
I found just a morsel at noon
I'm hungry, morsel of food,
satisfy me

I was not satisfied

I went in search of a treasure
I found gold, silver, and more.
I'm hungry, riches from earth,
satisfy me

I was not satisfied

No food,
No treasure,
has satisfied me

What am I missing?
I haven't a clue


Ready to quit and give up
I found a companion to share every thought

Without even asking,
the companion said with a grin

You're hungry, I'll satisfy you

When I was full
and content as could be
my companion made just one simple request of me

I'M HUNGRY, SATISFY ME!!

Much to ponder here--love the ironic(or is it?) twist at the end...and oh man, the never ending search for sensation...I like this much rodger.

"I'M HUNGRY, SATISFY ME!!"

The eternal search for happiness begins within, you can not fill the void with material possessions.

Well written, great poem, I loved that sharp twist of irony at the end.
