Ponce de Leon of La Mancha

Since her mother died,
she’s been cleaning out
the basement.

I keep telling her
she should get a job
so she doesn’t
lose the house,
but she keeps insisting
she’ll find
an antique
that will change her life
down there.

I think it says
a lot about her
that she would rather
hunt for treasure
that may not be there
than get a job.

How I feel about that
says a lot about me.
