diamond head and other games of life…

i made a quick stop
to check-in
on
aunt bea
since
i needed
to finish
a work project
that evening
aunt bea
said
i appreciate
your stopping by
to see me
with
such a heavy schedule
i was wondering
if
you’ve ever seen
that
old tv program
where
contestants
were put in a booth
with
money blowing
all
around them
their
task was to grab
as much money
as possible
in
a set timeframe
you could grab
as much as you could
but
you shouldn’t grab
one dollar bills
which
by the way
was
the most prevalent
denomination
roaring past you
if you ended up grabbing
one of those
during your time
in the booth
well
game over
you just got
to keep
what came
before
the first dollar bill
was pulled
from your
storage pouch
seems to me
much of life
these days
is spent
in a money booth
with folks
grabbing
as much money
as they can
but
at some point
the
game
is over
