A Question of Reinvestment

I have never thought to ask why the windshield wipers aren’t on the inside
Not once in 38 years and
When he asked the question
I smiled and played along
Internally grateful that I wouldn’t have to worry about paying for an Ivy League education
Grateful that is
Until just now
As I sat trying to write a poem about the question and
I suddenly remembered
All those times
I’ve used my sleeve
To rub the fog or
 Condensation or
Off of the inside
Of my windshield and
I wondered if I had better start putting more coins in his piggy bank and
Whether the University of Michigan
Michigan State University and
The University of California
Might give me some money back
So that I could put it to better use
