Watered down. Put off the scent. You feel like a fish out of water. Two peas in a pod. To live from hand to mouth. Sweating blood. Till the cows come home. Stop, look and listen. Take time to smell the roses. Plain as water. Sow much, reap much; sow little, reap little. Scraping the bottom of the barrel. Raking in the dough. A rose is a rose is a rose. Too little too late.
