Active, Relaxed...And 'Regular' - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Budgeting a fixed income,
Is not as easily done...
As someone scheduling,
Their upcoming annual cruise...
To lounge about on an exotic island.

My idea of a vacation...
Is the discovery I've found discounted prices,
At a local supermarket.
And I've got a few dollars left over in my pocket,
To buy an extra box of popcorn to pop.
With the hope to match at least three numbers,
On an infrequently purchased lottery ticket.

Budgeting a fixed income,
Is not as easily done...
As someone who suggests,
I should put a few coins away daily...
To save for a rainy day.

As far as I am concern...
From the lessons I've learned.
If I can manage to stretch and exercise my legs...
As often as I can.
I will keep my mind entertained,
When walking in the rain.
And I don't need a penny to get any Sun...
To do it when it's done.
As my mind is kept full and fresh with imagination.

I find it a whole lot cheaper,
When I am keeping active, relaxed...and 'regular'.
If you know what I'm saying from my perspective.
