the buying obsession

Always anxious
Looking for something
Having to find the best fit
Wanting the highest quality
At the lowest price

Desiring is wonderful
Searching is divine
Finding exciting
And acquiring sublime

Then comes the using
The applying
The carrying out
Of those anxious dreams

The looking and finding may last a week
The acquiring may involve a bit of a wait
The initial use can happen fast
Continued use tapers off

Is the acquisition of tools a habit?
Is their application a job?
Then why do they cease to satisfy
Launching another cycle of quest?

Never really satisfied
Except in the search
Once fulfilled
It starts anew.
