Tanka T087

When a free lunch ain’t
Worth the price of having to
Spend time with some folks –
Is a lesson I’m only
Learning now in my forties

Notes to this poem…

It had always been to this point because I’m so scrupulous with money.

But there’s no such thing as a free lunch, though, as the expression goes, right? 🙂

The poems titled Tanka, followed by a number, are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
