Just What are You Willing to Spend?

I suppose it would be easy to say
that I’d be lost without you
since in a sense I am lost anyway
whether or not in your company

There is way too much thought involved
and, in the absence of ground rules,
this leads to overabundance
words are obscure grunts at best

Take me but leave me my attributes
they are poor substitutes
for purpose and meaning in life
for it is all chopped liver
