$10 A Gallon?
$10 a gallon?
'Does that really matter now?
When it approached
One dollar per gallon...
You should have voiced your concern then!
Not when your pockets have gotten thin.
And deepened to hold more lint!
You want to make cents?
Put these sunglasses on.
Grab a twig from a bush...
And get to begging!
You might gain some sympathy,
From someone who recognizes you are in disguise.
And they are in the mood,
To share with you their good attitude.
IF they have some of 'that' left! '
Of Adventures Unknown
This phase of life today I face,
Is a remarkable experience...
To witness it as it takes place.
Unfolding as it is to have left behind regrets.
With a taking of steps to forgive and forget.
And it seems so fast the pace of it.
Especially looking back at my mistakes to commit.
With a gratefulness to now admit they were made.
