    The Account

    I’ve been spending and spending not thinking about
    What is in the account and how it comes out
    This morning I’ve spent it on nothing at all
    So I guess I should give it some thought after all

    There are days when I think I have spent it so well
    And I smile when I think of the stories to tell
    There are days when I don’t think I’ve spent it at all
    But it still slips away like a big rolling ball

    The account is uncertain it does not refill
    In fact there is only so much you can bill
    And as it is spent there's no entry about
    How much is left in - only how much came out

    So as I sit here thinking and not doing much
    I think of expenditure, debits and such
    Direct debits daily I’ve paid and I treasure
    And always hope some will be left for my leisure

    So now the account is not quite what it was
    I need to take stock of the figures because
    The clock has been ticking - I’m well past my prime
    I must make the best of how I spend my time
