$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! '
At The Crossroads
The many who can not see the light,
But take it upon themselves...
To dim with their darkened attempts to prevent,
Steps taken by those at the crossroads...
Where conflicts intersect and meet,
A choice between a progress to accept or leave...
At a crucial point in which reality can be clearly seen,
But their choice to make is to taunt and not receive...
That which shines bright with promise to believe.
