The things we want are tempting bait
That lure us to participate
At tourney field or concert hall,
To run the race or scale the wall,
That we may thus accumulate.

Yet base desire may turn to hate
As we are crushed beneath the weight,
Hemmed in on every side by all
The things we want.

The wise among us contemplate
What we should choose to venerate:
Ignore the worldly goods that call
Like Atalanta’s golden ball;
Let charity and love dictate
The things we want.
