Time and Money

I might have just paid
ten seventy-five
to watch the Muppets movie
with my family

kids soaking in the songs of my childhood
laughing at the same sillly gags
waiting for the happy ending

or I might have just paid
ten seventy-five
to watch my baby girl
play in the lobby

walking on her own two feet
grinning at my smile
staring at the bright candy behind glass

either way
it is time never to return
and it is money well-spent

life’s a happy song
when there’s someone by my side
to sing along
