Welcome!

I hope you like walking, or we could jog . . .
if you wore the right running shoes,
mine has worn thin, so the former will have to do.
Follow me, but be careful
at the crosswalks
drivers have known to speed up
if you get my drift
their aim is to eliminate
the threat they see growing,
— across from the university campus
— In a public spot,
a menace like yourself, forced
to wear the ragged debt of student loans and
stains of unpaid bills which you can’t
launder clean
Don’t worry. I understand.
Park your van next to mine.

    Now that looks like the beginning of a beautiful garden Sun. I love creepers. LOL!
    As for running, I think I’ll rather walk. You don’t want me having a heart attack this early, do you? hahahahaha! Shame yes, I always feel so sorry for those students with all that debt and in the end most of them can’t even find work. Stunning post hon. 😀 ♥ Hugs ♥

      that’s the hook, Phil…credit cards and student loans and later, spend the rest of your life paying off after the degree. that is if you make it through college… well, okay, we all need to hear: Happy Labor Day! 😆
