Five Dollars a Gallon

By Bill Lowe, Sterling

With gas prices climbing above the skies,

I realize there are ways I could improvise;

ride my bike to town for needed exercise,

reduce a few inches on these old thighs.

This decision could be discerned as wise,

but until the thermometer is on the rise,

I'm thinking I'll just painfully compromise,

and when I fuel up, I'll just close my eyes.
