Life in Waiting

He was hungry,

He always seemed hungry.

But what was he to do?

His job was minimum wage,

He had rent and a car payment.

What was left for food?

So he’d plan his meals

To be no more than $5 apiece.

He walked when he could

And never went out.

Some might call him a recluse.

But he was only frugal

With his money and time,

Waiting for the day

His big break would come.

When his book would appear

In book shop windows.

Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – frugal
