Take Your Own Lead

Don't let others lead you. They may be blind or, worse, vultures. ~ Rumi

Life was grand
but you know how it is
there was never enough

it has been said
he who dies with the most toys

as much as he had
there was still more
and he just had to have it all

he had run out of options
could not find a way on his own
to increase his hoard

one day he received a call
the voice on the other end of the line
had a proposal

FINALLY he thought
a way to have it all
with no sweat of the brow

he gathered together all he could
mortgaged his home
made the investment

he never heard that voice again
one was blind
the other a vulture
