Life’s emergencies

It is going to rain; I need a rainy day fund
I need an umbrella; I’m going to need it
Fast. Not meaning to be negative, sure bet
Holding on to the positive. No longer living
By Murphy’s Law, negative, put down
Unrealistic. Life’s emergencies comes UN aware.
I can promise you, and it can have a knock on
Effect, ending with a few. Statistics shows, given
A ten year period of time, where faced with one
Of life’s unexpected emergencies, it’s only a matter
of time. Build an emergency fund a nest egg, cushion,
Whatever. Prepare before the stormy winds will blow.
Make a start though small it may be, ready get set off
You go.
