Another daring 5-7-5 composition.  Visceral and apparently simple.  Except it isn't simple!  "You can't do with them and you can't do without them," comes to mind.

Nice Haiku here! The last line really brings it together so well, and it was unexpected, which I quite like.

Dave, thank you! I like how you've characterized this: apparently simple, yet not.

And Mike, thank you also! I don't know that this rises to the level of a haiku (other than in syllable count), but it's probably the closest I'll ever get to one! And I'm glad you picked up on the last line; I saw it like that myself but wasn't sure anyone else would.

Thank you, Phil. I was considering a more “witty” line — can’t even remember what it was now — but I then concluded it was just too clever, too much. This is what stayed.

Very nice, Judi! The last line gives me pause. It's doing double-duty with both negative and positive connotations going on ...
