It prods a man's hand, and it robs him of sleep,
It makes him climb mountains and travel the deep,
It makes him go wander down deep in a cave,
and do almost anything stupid or brave,
The longer denied the greater it grows,
It makes a man learn 'till he thinks that he knows.

This was cool. First few lines, I thought of greed leading to stealth and robbery of riches...As soon as I got mid-way through reading the poem, I realized it had to be curiosity.
Good teaser. Keep it up.
