Nothing Left to Lose

With nothing left to lose, I’d be lost,
And so might you. When all you’ve loved is gone,
Nothing remains which might defray that cost.
With nothing left to lose, I’d be lost
Just like a losing lotto ticket tossed
Away when I have nothing left to pawn.
With nothing left to lose, I’d be lost –
And so might you, when all you’ve loved is gone.

I’m just recovering from a week of alternating nausea and dizziness. My brain is just starting to work again, or at least I hope so. Not at all sure the above is positive evidence.

30 More Bucks

Thirty more bucks to give away the house
I thought I gave away three years ago
To a never-till-it’s-panic-time ex-spouse.
Thirty more bucks to give away the house
So she can save on rates. I shouldn’t grouse.
She needs it more than me, but even so —
Thirty more bucks to give away the house
I thought I gave away three years ago!
