More

Tomorrow I thirst again

What kind of crazy drink is this? I lift
This strange bottomless cup. You fill it up.
You fill me to overflowing and I
Am satisfied. I thirst no more. And yet
Still I will thirst for more…and more…and more.

I look to those who are thirsty. You fill
Their empty cups. You supply their need and
They are satisfied. They will thirst no more.
Tomorrow they will be back for some more.

I take all I need for this day. You fill
My worthless cup. You supply my need and
I am satisfied. I thirst no more. But
Tomorrow I will be back for some more.

Tomorrow I thirst again.
