The way of gluttony and abuse
of the body’s own capability
to accept what appears beyond
its normal, intrinsic ability
might result not in joyful laughter
but pain and regret hereafter.
Years of self-centered avariciousness
beyond all moral acceptability
might lead one into alleys of shame
and lack of social adaptability
to an atmosphere of sound
relationships that one in good conscience
When fortune is linked with the
cold effects of wrongdoings,
it loses its shine and sadly holds
no balance of human respectability,
for quantity alone doesn’t suffice
when quality justifies not its size.
Adding up the negative aspects,
we would but expect no more
than to see multiples of
glaring negativity in the equation
of our moral totality.
