If They’d Taught Me

I did not like the word that he gave me today
Pictures of big business and finance entered my head
Perhaps if they’d taught me about money and such
Turnover wouldn’t be this nightmare of thought
Because although it is companies that have these things
A person will have a budget and accounting system of sorts
To balance their income and expenditure
To know they have money for coffee and bread
Perhaps if they’d taught us how to work with what we bring in
How to balance and budget and invest
The personal banking minefield wouldn’t have me in turmoil
Sending me to eat an apple turnover or two
Avoiding the terror of running out of that all-important cash
To buy my delicacies once in a while
If only my lessons had involved these vital life skills
