Subject: Rate of Return

We're all floating in a vast oasis ...

Some are simply guaranteed a return
But others tend to coast without traces
Or any glimpse of an ending to learn

Some take out insurance to confirm
There's enough to cover if infirmed
Others just continue on the trek ...
Not concerned at all - what the heck?

Those folks may eventually win at some point
But it's a risk taken without any true joint ...
Whilst the folks who look way ahead and pin
Might well have no need at all for chagrin ...
