TOO RICH TO QUIT

                            Too poor to pay,
                            Too rich to quit.

                                    – Velvet (“Gunsight Ridge”, 1957)

We tread water in a river of time,
run a ranch against the current,
raise cows and write poetry

in the gloaming—
know no better
way to stay alive.

  1. John – that’s called “living the good life”! Count your blessings; the best way to live! (Hard times ‘n all…)
