What An Old Man Wants

What An Old Man Wants

Once I thought I knew what I wanted
Somehow imagined by now I’d know
Feel clear on what I don’t like

Yet what the world offers
Not what people get
You play the unbeatable slot machine
Set if you win to melt through the floor

Your best bet?
Don’t want
Others’ wants will come after you
You learn to run pretty fast

Is enough ever enough?
Not for long for most
When more is never enough?
You know then you’re a human
Dreamer of everything

Just getting ready to fail once again
