I had some cold cat dress me down once
Asked me if I studied anything.
I said it wasn’t my thing
He gasped, blew his mind.
Asked me what I did.
I told him, this and that.
He hung his head.
Asked me what I wanted to be
Said I never thought about it.
He almost shed a tear for me.
Asked me if I wanted to earn more
Said I got everything I need.
He told me what he earns.
Right on.
Asked me if I had regrets.
Said I made some choices.
He sighed in my direction.
Before he walked away
Asked him if he was happy.
He didn’t say much.
