Plenty, Happy and None

Have plenty or have none.
That is a question for everyone,
who seek high and low
and wonder how far they can go
with the little that they have,
with the lots they want to stash.

If you have none but you are happy
you would have had the best without plenty.
So, if you are happy with the satisfaction of none.
You might seem peculiar, you might be the only one.
But if you have none and yet you are unhappy,
Oh, how sad it must be to want it so badly.

Because you still long for things that glitter and glitz
You'd do anything to have that plenty that you wish.
Of your wants, of desires that abundance would bring
that none could give while you continue to dream.
When you have plenty you naturally become happy,
Life couldn't be more pleasing, blissful and always sunny.

Then again you might have plenty but you still remain unhappy,
That is to say you have everything and yet none makes you chirpy.
How could it be? Someone with none but unhappy might inquire.
And yet someone who is happy with none understands your hunger.
So what will it be? To have plenty or to have none?
Or to have sufficient and be happy, sated and dumb?
