Here it is folks, my life in a nutshell…
I’m hoping that all of you have a fabulous Friday,
INTROSPECT IN RETROSPECT
A bigger fool, there’s never been,
than the one that’s living, in my skin.
That is the thought, of this here man,
who went through life, without a plan.
Accepting days, as they passed by,
never viewing, with the inner eye,
never seeing days and weeks,
until the years, the bones, caused creaks.
Never frugal, or self-controlled,
as money through, the fingers rolled,
tomorrow always, the start anew,
but, as for today, I’ll have my due.
Then tomorrows, there are few,
and regret’s life’s meadow’s dew.
So, sow thy seed, but tend, thy crop,
and take only cuttings, off the top.
