[Error: unknown template qotd]I wrote this poem in my junior year of high school (and shared it with my English class), after my mother grumbled many-a-time about her rotten luck. Now that *I'm* an adult, I seem to suffer from it, too, haha.

SLOW AHEAD

Bank or store, it matters not,
It's just a talent that I've got.
It's something that I do just fine,
I always pick the slowest line.

--RMF (1991)
