A consumable,
but renewable.

waste not what you want not
because some ain’t got ‘jack’
and in two shakes of a sparrers
tail
they’d have the shirt off your back.

Energy,
though
not necessarily efficiency
gets me through
until I get home
and to you.

as an afterthought,

if I ever get to the top of
whatever tree this is I am
climbing
I’ll sign in
under a pseudonym.
