Thursday Thoughts - Leasing vs Sharing

Leasing
by Rachel Hoyt

Leasing is greasing
The tracks to possession,
Suggestion that ceasing
To own is perfection.
Intention: pleasing,
Freezing introspection,
Possessions tainting,
Slashing wise intentions.

Sharing
by Rachel Hoyt

Sharing is daring
To let your path collide,
Abide with caring,
Wear more trust than pride,
Alongside those faring,
Comparing their ride,
No guide, just a clearing,
Appearing like the tide.

This week's rhymes were inspired by a company leasing jeans
and business owners sharing space to operate within their means.

    1. I started out just writing about the ridiculous idea that we should lease jeans. I couldn't ever find a price for buying them, but leasing almost never works out to be cheaper for the "owner". It is just another way to live a life you can't yet afford.

      Sharing is a different story. The idea that business owners could share space like that to lower their overhead is really cool. :)

  3. Leasing something you could buy is just financing but without the ownership at the end. Doesn't make sense, usually--unless you REally like to have a new car all the time...That sharing is very cool (Hey, Barney the Dinosaur even knew that :-) Enjoyed your internal rhymes too!

  5. Image knows no bounds
    Sailing on a sea of vanity as green-eyed monsters surround
    The trick is to spend every penny he's is allowed
    Then spend just a little more
    Just enough to have to work his feet into the floor

    In this world
    Wise intentions are fictional inventions
    Here it's convention to seek each and every drip drop of attention
    And it's even true, that for the right price, even you can buy love and affection.
