Friday Poems

I thought this was an interesting poem during these times of great financial duress on Wall Street. So maybe it's not all due to low interest rates, subprime loans and greed -- but to broken hearts!

To the loves i missed & had

You know what's true and
you know what's real.
You got hurt and you know
how it feels,
to have no money.
So you go out and give
your love
to stocks and bonds.
And forget all about
your honey.
But that won't last,
and your life will soon
seem dry.
High heaven knows
we all get lonely,
but you will wonder
God only knows and i
can but sigh,
For you've cashed in
and passed love by.

-- Anthony R. Valli
