The Endless Quest for Nothing

An ad
Placed for $10,000
Of a woman lounging on an exotic beach
Excites a booking
For $3,500 and change
For a flight
And resort,
Paying for food and drinks and activities
Still running
Looking out of the corner of the eye
for that woman
on the lounge chair.

A thought gently tugs:

Why buy nothing
When it is free?
