Loose Change

You've gotta stay loose

Like change

Before you're torn
When the goods exchange

For the better

For the worse.

To be used
To the best
Is a curse.

This might not make sense
Or cents
Or millions,

But hindsight's a pretense
At the expense
Of resilience.

Take the tumble

For the worst
Is much better
Than whatever
Your temptors

I can change
Thanks to change.


And sell short.
