It All Adds Up
larrylark

I am the sum of my endeavour’s.
 1
Forever a successful man who drives a fancy car,
 2
replete with hydraulic parts,
 3
pot hole scanner,
 4
tanned interior of Saddletan Luxhill leather
 5
enclosing weather proofed wool plaid,
 6
fixed in place with diamond crusted ivory studs,
 7
customised wood dash board.
 8
I can afford it all and all is good.
 9
 
 
Am i tempted to wave
 10
towards the crowd wandering in disarray.
 11
No way!
 12
That would violate my mantra.
 13
Never tantalise taunt or flaunt.
 14
So I sit behind my smoked glass window,
 15
toasting my good fortune, knowing it all adds up.
