This is a dangerous thing we do,
Not exercising self control,
Eager for the rush of excitement,
Not counting the cost of the ruin it can cause.
Instant gratification —
It’s our culture now!
Why settle for one
When we can have two or more?
In most cases
It can be considered
But not so, if taken to extreme.
Two girlfriends/wives, two jobs,
Several bank accounts, two homes,
Two completely separate lives.
But then again, why not?
Trouble is, this duality
Can one day become
A horrible nightmare!
When all those worlds
Come crashing down,
Is instant gratification
Really worth the cost?
