Temperance

We want it all
Now!
Abstention–are you kidding?
Balance? Temperance?
But there is one more
piece of chocolate left,
only one more of this
or that
until we have forgotten
our determination
to practice temperance
in all that we do
and remain bogged
down in our excess
bloated by gluttony.

  1. Yup, bogged down by our gluttony … quite the image! My mother-in-law belonged to the American Temperance Union … I doubt such an organization would find many callers today! We are surely a gluttonous race!
