A 30 year mortgage
A wife and two kids
A five year car note
And cubicle walls
Reality tv shows
Video games
A white picket fence
And a 401k
14 days a year
For vacation and disease
A midlife crisis
And divorce
Insurance premiums
Bar tabs
Investments and interest
The bottom line
Pay checks and savings
Memoirs and regrets
Writing a will
And finally death
