Counting money again

Sometimes paychecks change
sometimes prices change
budgets need evaluated
enough sometimes changes

the math is simple, but not easy
everybody wants
wants are sometimes louder than needs
yet there is not much more than enough

It seems the maximum cost is elastic
every dime can be consumed
the minimum cost less so
for needs remain needs

Is warmth a luxury?
if not, are wool blankets warmth?
at what point is consumption “too much”?
do we demand more than the world can afford?

When do I look at everything and say “Enough”?
When does the cautious counting end?
