$10 a Gallon?

$10 a gallon?
For what?

'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!
MAYBE...
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! '

    Well done - despite the golden rule that says you need to avoid figures that will date the poem!

    Perhaps a haiku would go like this:
    Mustn't complain,
    Should have complained,
    Why didn't I complain.
    We have to stop believing the BS and start standing up to these corporations and their pupets in our Governments.-10
