A random poetry caught my eye this morning like a tail wagging the dog.
This led me to think further of what it really meant to mankind and its survival.

Has 'want' and 'need' lost count over its point of accumulation ?


The poem goes as below ..



Low-cal local
Dietry emissions
Are being used in
Nuclear fissions.

Eat up the world
At a phenominal pace,
Cremate the remains
And send them to space
In a tupperware box.

Finish her off.

Finish her off.

"Eat her all up"
The corporates scoff...

They ate her up;
Now theyve no-where to live,
They took all she had
Now shes nothing to give:
Floating in space in her
Tupperware box.



Admitting the fact that WE are HER, why do we consecrate to the factor that wipe us out ?

Who are we ? Where lies our beginning and the end ?

Where did we originate from and what have we carried with ourselves while having taken birth?

What do we accumulate here and WHY ?

What are we gonna carry with us after death ? Is the purpose of accumulation served ?

Why do we need more than we actually need ?

How much ?

If it is too much, then HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH ?

Ah having read it I felt a hunger in my tummy

A voice echoed

"Eat before it is too late

For soon all else will dissipate

Thelandyou stand on is sinking

A heavy price to pay for not thinking"

Very nice Summer.

There is a poem I want to share as well.

A little boy tells his mummy that he has a person in his tummy. It talks to him at night in bed and demands to be fed. It tells him to sneak cookies from the tin. The boy knows it's wrong to guzzle food all day, but he can't help it, not with the person in his tummy. His mother accuses him of lying. "You are the greedy guzzling brat! / And that is why you're always fat!" The boy tries again to explain but his mother sends him to bed. Just then his stomach begins to rumble and grunt and shake. A voice shouts, "I'm getting hungry! I want eats! / I want lots of chocs and sweets!" The boy asks his mother if she believes him now... but she's fainted away on the floor.

Here it goes like ..

The Tummy Beast

by Roald Dahl


One afternoon I said to mummy,
"Who is this person in my tummy?
"Who must be small and very thin
"Or how could he have gotten in?"
My mother said from where she sat,
"It isn't nice to talk like that."
"It's true!" I cried. "I swear it, mummy!
"There is a person in my tummy!
"He talks to me at night in bed,
"He's always asking to be fed,
"Throughout the day, he screams at me,
"Demanding sugar buns for tea.
"He tells me it is not a sin
"To go and raid the biscuit tin.
"I know quite well it's awfully wrong
"To guzzle food the whole day long,
"But really I can't help it, mummy,
"Not with this person in my tummy."
"You horrid child!" my mother cried.
"Admit it right away, you've lied!"
"You're simply trying to produce
"A silly asinine excuse!
"You are the greedy guzzling brat!
"And that is why you're always fat!"
I tried once more, "Believe me, mummy,
"There is a person in my tummy."
"I've had enough!" my mother said,
"You'd better go at once to bed!"
Just then, a nicely timed event
Delivered me from punishment.
Deep in my tummy something stirred,
And then an awful noise was heard,
A snorting grumbling grunting sound
That made my tummy jump around.
My darling mother nearly died,
"My goodness, what was that?" she cried.
At once the tummy voice came through,
It shouted, "Hey there! Listen you!
"I'm getting hungry! I want eats!
"I want lots of chocs and sweets!
"Get me half a pound of nuts!
"Look snappy or I'll twist your guts!"
"That's him!" I cried. "He's in my tummy!
"So now do you believe me, mummy?"
But mummy answered nothing more,
For she had fainted on the floor.

*flexes the wrist and ....... tickles the tummy* (Now if that's too much, tell me how much?)

On the contrary, when asked a starving child about how hungry it is .The response would seem somewhat similar. Where such an innocent unknowingly limits its desires terminating it. Why can't the human beings draw a demarcation line to his needs ?

A double quarter pounder

With extra cheese

A large order of fries and

A diet coke please


No such thing as too much of a good thing.


In the end it balances out. Too much of one thing, leads to too little time on earth.
