Christmas Debt

Hope Turns To Pain In The Credit Card Game
May 2021 Return The Hope

The crushing shackles of debt, kills the spirit of life
pulling families under, way the kids cry and wonder.
To those who buy more than they need, to those
who make less than what feeds, the pain bleeds.

Some buy to fulfill themselves, sometimes its just
sickness from hell, Other must match the Jones
down the street, while many are just trying to eat.
we stack it up at home, waiting on the new iphone.

Couples will scream, cuss and cry, other will steal
hide and lie, divorce will tell the family goodbye.
When you are working 80 weekly hour to succeed
still barely above the water while you proceed.

Running the gauntlet of the credit card switch and
swap, as your balance balloon over your limit’s top.
The latest news reported someone through the dice
went for it all, the reason the police had to be called

Your company stated your actions and its relevance
The D.A. wrote it down and then call it embezzlement
Look at all that shiny stuff hear the Christmas chimes
debt to the last dime your card comes out one more time.
