$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! '
Living To Wish On Wishes
Wanting a better quality of life to live,
Takes living it to make it better.
With this wanted while in the process.
Instead of wishing for dreams.
Awaiting them to exist.
Few will admit they sat to sit.
Until their dreams appeared.
And decided from which they would pick.
Luck to have it,
