It can’t be too much
Not when I have too much
Not when my luck
Stands out like a beacon
Warning the world
Of my ingratitude

It can’t be too much
Because I’m always fine
Because I must
Count every blessing
Diligently
Despite my despair

It can’t be too much
Though it weighs too much
Though I am spread
As if I’m the last
Smidge of butter
On a burnt piece of toast
