More or Less

By the time he had made enough money to buy whatever money could buy, he realised that he was too old to recollect what he thought money could buy before he had made enough money to buy, to buy whatever money could buy, and wished that he had made far less money to buy than what money could buy and remembered far more about what he thought money could buy if he had money to buy.  

Mission

I wonder what this bee wants with me. I don’t think it wishes to sting me, but it’s flying too close to me for my comfort. I never invited it in when I went to collect the morning paper. It’s been whizzing past me ever since, not letting me concentrate on the news. Finally, it comes down and perches on the newspaper next to my right thumb. I throw away the newspaper in alarm and run out into the balcony. The bee follows me and disappears somewhere inside the tree facing me from the street. The tree is in full bloom. Like the bee, I don’t know the name of the flowers, but they are lovely to watch. I stare at them as they softly glow under the autumn sun. Quite oblivious of newspapers. I think the bee has accomplished its mission.
