Richer than I ever imagined!

Like so many, no real desperate drive for riches and glory

More so a searching need for love, friends, food on the table, a roof over my head

Never in my wildest dreams could I have envisioned

Being the recipient of a family heirloom of Fiesta dinner plates

Sixteen lead free Fiesta plates

There are just two of us so you can imagine

The numbing realization that never ever would

We lack for a dinner plate even if we lived to a hundred

Like any lottery winner considered sharing with other family members

However that idea was quickly and firmly nixed

By the well established Madame of the house

So it is then

Worrying about dinner plates has been crossed off the bucket list

Attention may be turned towards the remainder of the place settings

Though there remains many unopened boxes

That might fill the definitive need for completing these places settings

The richest family of two in the world!
