The Road Least Traveled

The words o’ the ol’ man in the cave returned to his brain:

“You may pick only 1: your money or (some o’) your life.”

He was close to the fork. He’d have to choose toward which turn to aim.

I can always get money somewhere else…

But I need money just to live: if I can’t get mo’, I’ll lose both.

¿How many hearts do I need?

That was when he realized that in his distraction he’d passed both turns, going straight ‘stead.

That was also when he saw the crowd just ‘head, surrounding some crab & some black device full o’ wires.
