The freedom I enjoy to pursue business each day,
Is an unknown to many who work for their pay.
I market a product, annuities, that grows and protects money,
A subject that arises often with anyone's honey.
Spoke on the phone an hour ago with a lady stranger,
She works in another state, is not a danger.
The subject of music came up--she plays the accordion,
Been awhile since it's been played, at least music worth recordion.
She then volunteered her sister plays a guitar,
With just a little practice, this duo could go far.
"Oh, I don't know" she said, then said she is retiring soon,
"Great" I said, more time to practice singing about the moon.
Isn't it wiser to think of "why not", rather than consider why,
Any idea needs to brainstorm for awhile before attempting to fly.
Don't let others steal your dream; knock it around some more,
Often an idea needs to be rethought, a worthwhile chore.
Orville and Wilbur did alright for themselves fixing bicycles,
50 years ago, we never separated regular trash from recycles.
Get the idea out into the open and kick the tires,
Any blacksmith is unemployed w/o access to steady, hot fires.
