Poor Richard's Rich!
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
Since this one apple is my share,
I halve it plus a bit more to spare
For the animals to keep them sound,
With the rest good enough to come around
To me, saved for when my stomach growls.
"Today's tomorrow shaping" hoots the owl.
No wall divides it from the dream,
As on flows time, a moving stream,
And with it tears of woe, yet joy -
The man is yet a grownup boy!
"A penny spared is twice got",
Without the morrows the war's won not,
"A penny saved, two pence dear",
Assures victorious the ending year!
Author's Notes: A penny spared is twice got - George Herbert, Outlandish Proverbs
A penny saved is two pence dear - Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard's Almanack
Author's Location: Toledo, Ohio
