Enough Is As Good As A Feast

By John I. Blair

ďEnough is as good as a feast.Ē So read
My fortune today; but when I digested
What my fortune cookie had said,
I wondered how I could know whatís enough.
Wonít it be later, when my gut
Passes on the internal report
That the food I et did not upset?
And sometimes isnít enough too much,
As when Iíve had enough belladonna
To do the job? As for a feast,
Well, thatís a beast of a different color,
And probably one with an apple jammed
Full in its jaws. For isnít the very
Idea of a feast replete with the notion
Of more than enough? How else can it be
A feast? Thatís what Iíve always thought.
So, if excess produces stress,
Then maybe enough is better than a feast,
If itís enough of the right stuff.
