Enough

1

When do you know enough
Is it on your death bed
Or when you fall prey to illness
Or when you lose your job
2
Where is enough
While you are striving to win
At the game of money making
And neglecting your soul
3
What is the hunger that drives
When in the end you cannot eat
While your neighbour starves
Under your watchful eye
4
Why does human wisdom
Come to our door
When it is too late
To know enough is enough
5
Whence we thus resolve
To make amends for the past
And use the resources available
To benefit mankind
