How many of us

Upon reflection and review

Of mirror pantry account

Shelf home and garage

Of love sex and affection

Friends expression and popularity

See scarcity and nots

Not enough not exactly

And not anywhere near

Not right not near(ly)

And certainly not long

That silly little word

Always makes almost everything

Into a woeful nothing

What if by not notting

By unnoting the ball

That you call life

You have plenty more

Much more in fact

Than you’ll ever need

Let the have nots

Keep their nots tightly

Notted misery loves company
