A Man’s Hobby

A rare old coin
is a happy find;
Each one added
helps content the mind.

Some like copper
nickel, silver, and gold;
I’ll go for anything
that’s valuable and old.

Our wives think we are nuts,
and sort of dry and lazy;
The security we offer
might even seem quite crazy.

They think each time we invest
a dollar or maybe ten;
Their wardrobe should be extended
and really — to no end.

The poor girls don’t realize,
the dough we did save;
Until they plant us
deep down in our grave.

And only then, after planted,
they will thank us.
For the money we saved,
Our effort soon forgotten
for the fine road we have paved.

By gaming we lose both our time and treasure: two things most precious to the life of man.

Someone once asked me why women don’t gamble as much as men do, and I gave the common-sensical reply that we don’t have as much money. That was a true but incomplete answer. In fact, women’s total instinct for gambling is satisfied by marriage.

Diligence, frugality, and perseverance, are the leading steps to wealth.

PATIENCE

By Lisa Gorton

Stairs that rise to unused rooms, their amber afternoons:

hours that bear the weight – mahogany as patience –

of a bed made smooth and leather-bound books sequestered

like shoes queuing – the wrong way – to step out.
