Habit`Acrostic Poem

H ankering strong
A ction automatic
B ehavior addictive
I ndulgence frequent
T endency regular

Ever develop a new habit and question the why?
A recent craving for a cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream
is becoming a concern.
The timing ranges from 11:00 p.m. same day to 2:00 a.m. following one
determined by noise from a most inconsiderate overhead tenant which
awakens me from a sound sleep.
To report said individual will serve no purpose other than possible increase
of problem.
He thinks only of himself – factor discovered when vocalized another noise
complaint of different nature.
The hours of ‘quiet enjoyment’ mean little to a narcissist who feels entitled to
do whatever because he pays his rent.
Apartments are scarce; rents are excessively overpriced (some more than a
mortgage payment).
Let me tell you:  “Not all prisons have bars”, therefore I endure my circumstances.

Should I be worried about my newfound habit or should I just enjoy that cup
of cocoa and its effects?
After all this comfort drink manages to relax me, allowing me to fall back to sleep.
