Avarice

Sometimes less is more. 

I had a velvet scrunchy,

I took it everywhere,

And I could always find it,

When I tidied up my hair.

 

I loved that velvet scrunchy,

It was perfect for me,

So next time I went shopping,

Got another a set of three.

 

One went in my handbag,

Another in a drawer.

I hung one in the bathroom,

On the hook behind the door.

 

I had one in my pocket,

At least I did the other day,

But now I just can’t find it,

Seems it must have slipped away.

 

And the one from the bathroom,

Is no longer on the hook,

I’m annoyed I just can’t find it,

No matter where I look.

 

I went to tie my hair up,

Getting ready for a run,

Since I got the extra scrunchies,

I can’t find a single one.

 

So, the moral of this story,

Is sometimes less is more,

I only need one scrunchy,

I don’t need four.
