A Haiku - Portion Control
Wanting what you get....
Acceptable amounts of everything....
Portion control fits.
Well suited to life's desires.
Little sparks, big fires.
If "there must needs be moderation in all things," then a moderate amount of what we gather, allows adequate room for all we need. Overdoing, over-indulgence, force something else to be left out, even lost. "Moderation in all things" does not deny tasting life, it cautions against too much of too little.
