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.

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.


Heart, income, scooter
