The Dog and His Reflection / All covet, all lose. It is very foolish to be greedy

Clutching a juicy chunk of steak, a dog

Was gladly homeward bound,

When crossing a small stream upon a log

He saw another bound, —

A mirrored creature, –eager jaws clamped tight

Round some delicious meat.

The watcher, at this appetizing sight,

Hoped for a double treat.

But as he snapped to seize his rival’s treasure,

His own was dropped and lost.

Greed’s shadow-prize, he learned with little pleasure,

May have too high a cost.

Ancient Greek Philosopher, Socrates said “Contentment is natural wealth, luxury is artificial poverty.”

If you are not content with what you have, you may lose all.
