Everything in Moderation

Everything in moderation
Just as Aristotle said
Too much of a good thing
Makes a good thing bad instead

Sweet is good but too sweet is annoying
Someone who’s just too sweet is cloying

A compliment every now and then can be romantic
But pay too many compliments and you’re sycophantic

If you listen more than talk there’s a lot you can learn
But if you hardly ever talk, you’re taciturn

Call me names if you want but no stones, no sticks
If I use too many words, you can call me prolix

Everything in moderation
Just as Aristotle said
Too much of a good thing
Makes a good thing bad instead
