Smart Investment

I stand under the streetlight
smoking, looking North.
They're getting lit up.
Thunderstorms, and most importantly,
Hail.
If I wasn't at work (and somehow sober)
I'd drive up there.
I look at my car.
For five years I've had Full Coverage and
not a single dent ding or bender.
I sigh, finish my cigarette and go back inside.
Knowing someday my investment has to pay off.
Someday we will get the Hail.
And I will finally get my check.

  8. I imagined that in black and white, but more of a 50's tone. Classy cigarette smoking and jazzy background stuff.

  9. It's pretty tough when you pay all your insurances but nothing happens. Wasted money, I'd say.
