Eighty percent of Americans owe ten thousand or more on credit cards.


Up before down.
In bed near midnight.

On the way to work,
Red, dry-eyed
Blurry vision greets the sunrise
Where fumes obscure vision and
Choke the temporary
Freeway parking lot inhabitants.

Once a year, for a week or two,
The family vacations
Where hours are lost
As delayed flights steal time
Or pirates chase cruise ships off course
All with an American Express or Visa paving the way.

Orlando one year;
The Mediterranean or Grand Canyon the next
With plans to climb Everest in the works.

After each vacation,
The family stagers back to work or school
Swilling caffeine laced energy drinks to keep moving.
Trips to France and Germany wait on the horizon.

Debt buys thrills;
Retirement does not exist
Except on an endless treadmill.
Are we having fun yet?
 

My Splendid Concubine

Geez, I can only dream of taking vacations such as the ones you mention. Love the sarcasm, how very true....

Be always safe,

Lloyd,
Borrowed money, borrowed time, ant and grasshopper, you say it so well; I think Oscar Wilde was right, I'll have to die beyond my means, and it looks like the rest of us will, too, if we continue with this madness.
