I waited so long
for a break of some kind
I thought I wouldn't live
long enough to see it come
and now nearly tapped out
not one but three offers of work
hound my attention
feast or famine as the old timers used to say
I've spent years telling people
who'd ask how I'm doing
that God must have a worse fate
in store for me but now
I'm as likely to say I'm just glad
the Reaper is busy elsewhere....
