LESSONS TO BE LEARNED FROM THE TRIBE OF DAN
What sly whisperer
offered you this choice
that you have chosen?
Was it like finding a long lost
made of precious metal
you could not resist?
Now your true treasure
across the countryside
that could have been our children’s inheritance
lies, forgotten, among growing weeds…
Did you true friend warn you?
With due deference to the Old Testament and the story of the Tribe of Dan. If you wish, substitute “your District” for “the countryside”, or “your pension” for that pesky gold.
