The Decision

 
The Decision by Lori Lipsky

She contemplated her pro-con list
considered the alternatives
calculated opportunity cost
contrasted loss versus benefit

Then acquiesced 
to the one in authority, and
made the decision
to go to bed

  1. Oh Lori, this poem and that photo explain each other perfectly. This is an inspired pairing.
    Great GREAT read again today!

    • Thanks, Sue. I loved this photo when I saw it a few months ago. The little girl has been sitting on my desktop, looking out at me, waiting for me to formulate words to accompany her expression.

  2. How could anyone resist the expression on this face! I love the way your words fit so well to this picture!
