The New Account

Because I’m good with numbers, most assume
I’ve figured out the market and invest
to great returns, but I can’t time a boom
or downturn – that’s no field where I do best.
In fact, I’ve never tried the game before.
I bought a house instead and with amounts
for late-in-life, I pooled and let the more
expert select the mix for my accounts.

But having sold the family abode,
I finally have cash to put to earn.
Unmanaged but diversified, the mode
I choose is my advice. I tried to learn
and found me blind. I’ll average in my buys,
rebalance, and set course for gentle rise.
