$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! '
They Know Better
There are those who believe,
They know better what others should do.
With it done.
Yet can not tell anyone,
If they know the people they talk about.
Or why they were not aware,
Of knowing what others should do...
Who have done that and more,
Without them having a clue.
