Income pleat is the crease I’ve observed
in what monies I thought were reserved
for my food, gas and life.
Now inflation is rife!
Biden’s world makes me poor and unnerved

When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy



Kindness is a seed sown by the gentlest hand, growing care's flowers.

unnerved, I am poorer than dirt
but if you need it, I'd give the shirt
off my back for your own
and I'd certainly loan
you a ten-spot if it didn't hurt

A ten-spot wouldn’t help; wouldn’t hurt
when I’m so close to losing my shirt.
Savings down to the dregs,
can’t afford milk and eggs
and with poverty, I daily flirt.

You are flirting with Poverty now?
Isn't she that old street-walker cow?
Hope that you're not so needy
you resort to the seedy
doing anything time will allow!

Time allows we can do anything
when we segue from winter to spring.
Would that life followed suit
so this crusty old coot
could relive all the years that would bring.

If this coot could live years back to spring
it would probably be from Ginseng
drinking cups of that stuff
may perhaps be enough
to give blood-flow a little upswing
