$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! '
Drowning In Malaise
To be a rebel has its benefits.
Always on the prowl.
Is the rebel.
Seldom does a rebel quit to sit.
Rebels will be heard.
With words that are often,
Offensive and direct.
And purposeful for a chosen effect.
