$10 A Gallon?

$10 a gallon?
For what?

'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! '

Deserving To Observe It

Long after we leave behind,
What we now perceive is significant.
Nature remains involved in evolving.
To continue on.
Long after we leave,
Our negligence to accept...
What God creates.
To take for granted.
And unable to give or express respect.
