$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! '
Meaningless To Receive
Many believe it when they hear,
'It Is Never Too Late'.
To discover before others,
That a 'Never' for them does come.
And awaiting to address,
What time has passed no longer allows.
Leaves them unable to express unexpectly,
To someone else what is not accepted.
Since lost dignity and respect to give,
