Gluttony
 
When satisfaction remains an eternal desire
When the satiable becomes the insatiable
When enough is a new beginning
It is hunger on a frantic journey
To an empty garden
Food becomes a new religion
Where the kitchen is the temple
The full stomach is  
Spiritual fulfillment
It is the present spiraling
Toward the present
Future promises always a minute away
Material gains, an immeasurable measurement
A nameless river in its anonymous flowing
A need after all needs are met
A claim to excessive abundance
A plan to extinguish the
Fire with more fire
It attacks everyone who
Who is led by hunger
When man becomes an animal
And animal becomes his master
