The Gatherers

by Jason E. Hodges

The hunter gatherer is a thing of the past
Now some hunt, most will gather
They gather their paychecks
Then gather their groceries
Then comes the landlord to gather the rent
Then comes schools to gather tuition
Then comes the bank to gather the car note
Even the kids gather money for fun
Most all have gone to the gathering game
Letting their wants consume them
Saving has become something of a myth
Like a fairy tale
Like a fleeting thought
The smell of foreclosure has become an incredible stench
Why save when they live for today
This is exactly what the gatherers will say
They say with their actions time after time
All caught up in their gathering grind
