Rational Irrationality

The truth is sometimes bitter
We crave a sweeter taste
Rationality's a quitter
The intellect, a waste.

We seek our consolations
And purchase where we can
We ride unbridled passion
Without a guiding plan

The price is on the sticker
So little money down
We do not stop to bicker
And pay without a frown

And if the price were higher
And the payment terms were worse
We'd think a little harder
And close our precious purse

We seek our consolations
And purchase if we dare
But we must tame our passion
And think before we err.
