Losing a Million May 19, 2020

Losing a Million

when I lost a million dollars

I was angry that life couldn’t

do compassionate math you know

see what happened adjust the books

look for a hidden bonus or owed favor

bring out something special from

the back vault but she didn’t

still she knew exactly how much

I needed and more than that

taught me that wealth and riches

were merely caloric numbers

that burying bad apples or

any failed experiment would grow things

sweeter of superior value and produce

the best nutrients for any shot at happiness
