The money circle of poverty

The big bang is not in my account,

I mean that the balance is a paltry amount.

I know my balance down to the smallest cent,

But with credit the account has hell bent.


Buy this and I need that,

The rent comes first and that is a fact.

Then electricity, water and other checks go out,

The zero comes quickly as I see the ten count.


Like a fighter in the ring, I get tired and have been punched senseless,

I feel like a failed math student and I have failed and now I am a mess.

Oh economy God let the money flow and my spirit will soar,

But that God is asleep at the wheel and all I hear is his snore.
