After Luke 12:13-21

We pack it all in
our basements, or attics,
our storage lockers, our storage pods,
our garages, our closets,
our warehouses, our second
and third houses,
we pack it all in and 
soon realize it’s not enough,
we don’t have enough
for our comfort, our safety,
our security, our peace of mind,
our station, our position,
the reason doesn’t matter
but we need more
so we get more and find
new ways and new places 
to pack it all in. so it’s there,
ready and accessible, our comfort
until we realize we need more
until our life is demanded of us
and they say in remembrance
that he with the most stuff
