Head in the Clouds

I got three for free
but whatever you give
I’ll grab and want more,
it comes and it goes
but it’s always above or below
appropriate amounts.
Listen, because
this is when it counts,
whatever comes,
whatever shows
along the way,
I will surmount.

And look at it all from up here
 it’s all carried and doesn’t stick
it’s there without weight
and I really hate
to come down the mountain,
welsh on the bet I’m taking:
that when I try slaking
my thirst is when
I feel it worst.
