Cost comparison


There is a time when the picky, choosy, and frugal do well
But how good when summoned or told to do so?
This one comes with no inference an option
Assessing costs are good
But obeying the more costs you less
Actions indicate the call to do you abhorred
Insufficient returns assured to the disobedient
Plenteous goodness and spoils the obedient receive
Quite expensive can be a moment taken to ponder foolishly;
Should I or should I.
Poor analysis led to paralysis when the prognosis pointed to goodness.
Obey you wish you had to avert sadness.
Wisdom yet gained amid a moment to ponder this or consider this.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
