$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! '
Decency And Respect
Trust to receive but deceived to manipulate it,
Will never again...
Be thought okay to leave that trust,
With anyone who proves they can not be honest.
And lies as if preparing to compete,
In an annual World wide lieing competition.
When trust and honesty are scrutinized to suspect,
And deception and lies to expect...
