Your Nest Egg

You have trusted

You have waited

Not spinning the dice

But waiting to see

The gold

Pile up

In those coffers

You asked

And did not demand


I demanded

And I have paid


From one place

To another

One personality

To the next


Look at my coffers

Ever filling

And emptying


You steadily grinded on

For years

I just

Threw down my cards


Over and over

I saw what came to pass


What I sowed

And finally

All I am left with

Is one piece

Of the millions


By me

For a little while


While you

Steadily crept up behind me

With a golden egg

Laying splendid

In your secured nest

High up in a safe tree
