The Responsible Hedonist

By forgoing a latté a day
I could squirrel away
Enough money to retire

I could suppress every urge
And the tendency to splurge
To get filthy rich by 80

But it would be such a trial
This path of denial
I don’t think I could last

Besides, without my consumption
The economy won’t function
And I just got a new credit card

So I’ll give in
And indulge every whim
And die of a heart attack at 40
