The Old Mighty Dollar

Got To Have It

7.00 am for the working stiff again chasing that old mighty dollar it never ends
Welcome to your nightmare shall we begin. That burning sting your dying dreams
that losing theme. that insatiable yearn for the almighty dollar, poverty makes
them scream before they cuss after they holler.

Theirs growing hatred for the powers that be, credit cards with chains here comes another
late fee. Will the landlord institute another rental increase soon! you will be severed
with an order, to assist and decease

NO wonder why your car insurer changed the pricing code, you know you lied about your
true zip code, but worry not the financing company will ease your load, after the
repossession it will be resold.

A slaves at work! 8 hour day, no point in whining about the low pay
you can ignore dismissing this tip, ready to sign that pending pink slip.
Do you have the extra blankets you’ll need, before this cold night pass,
if you can’t pay the bill they’ll turned off your gas.

This new normal the days come and past, ever wonder how long new normal last,
watching people eating out of the trash. What can the people do, politicians lie after
the vote is through, hungry! the homeless! don’t have a cue, some cry we need to
sue, who works for food with no teeth to chew.

Off to work don’t be late still! the paycheck is spent before the pay date,
your one bedroom barely a bath life comes bland then cold, gray and fast.
conflicted inside evicted! to the sidewalk with nothing but pride. That card broad
encampment they found you inside, far to late you had already died, finding
resentment edged on your face, such a death in a shameful disgrace.
