TO BE BOTH ANT AND GRASSHOPPER

Anyone
in their pursuit of work
and fun
can be,
wrapped up all into one
an ant
AND a grasshopper,

for to be a ready ant
depends
on how one spends
one’s talents-treasure-time,
and toward
which ends
one thus becomes
a well-equipped
smart crafter
or smart shopper–

and though we all
do take some pains
to be prepared,
we do it all through
our particular
life lens,

and that singularity of view
in many circumstances will just do,

but on our road
might crop up, too,
such events
in which
our hand-picked preparations
don’t quite do,

which makes us happy
to find friends
who can air-lift us from
our own particular
dead-ends

because
their particular taste trends
led them to acquire
a trusty helicopter.
