I should leave this behind -
go to the third world to assist,
do something thoughtful and kind
I shoud be an altruist!

Or... should I go live in a tree -
enjoy the morning's mist,
love the world as a hippy
I should be a naturist!

Maybe... I should go spend
buy everything on my wish list
get the better model than my friend
I should be a materialist!

But, I think I'll just go out and drink
get absolutely pissed
no need to stop and think
I'm a selfish hedonist.
