This poem is inspired by the
words of Bono as recounted by
Mick Wall in his book "Bono".

Bobo was tored of churning out
more of the same music, while it
was good it still was boring for him.

"... we (U2) were growing disillusioned
with the pap, the wallpaer (music) and the

Its as if someone has eat too many chocolates
... suddenly they're beginning to feel ill as
they look at all the papers around the room."

The lesson I see from this is that over
indulgence in life or a part of it, leads us
to feel sick of life, or tired of it, and it
may be this that leads us to be so unhappy
causing our social problems, while those who really
have life hard appreciate it when things become
good if only for a while, and so are happy and smiling.

Too many chocolates have been enjoyed,
As you look at their wrappers around the room scattered,
As nothing in life seems important right now,
At this moment nothing else mattered...

For l;iving for now is the new way,
Live only for now and to excess,
Thinkk not of tomorrow or yesterday,
Forget it, and care about less.

Wise words of Bono, written one day,
Of how his music needed to be reinspired,
By a dound and a vibe and by something new,
For of all that there was he was tired.

Too much of a good thing is not good at all,
After a while it all seems the same,
Like the kid in the kitchen who too many chocolates ate,
That we cant enjoy them now: we are too blame!
