What lies behind the green glass door?

There are walls, but no ceiling

There's tomorrow, but not today

There are trees but no birds

There's swimming but no diving

There's running but no walking

There's sinning but no justice

You can tour the mall but not the market

There's beets, cabbage, and lettuce

but no tomatoes, onions, or celery

You can have cherry pie, but not blueberry

There's winning but no losing

There's sobbing but no tears

There are otters but no beavers

There is seeking but never finding

There is looking but no searching

There's millions but not thousands

There's always needing but never wanting

To have it all, you must first have none

So I'm not saying adios as much as I'm saying goodbye
