$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! '
Your interests in the best,
Of my interest to confess...
Seems more to your advantage.
Than mine to reflect.
And a wish for me to believe,
You come from a place of sincerity.
And not yet another test,
Of my ability to be gullible.
Or naive to leave you pleased.
