40-Year Leases - Poem by Ali Eckermann

high on compensation
they tell me right from wrong
say the old days are over
you gotta sign the paper

coming on the charter plane
all friendly sitting round
say we gonna fix this place
you gotta sign the paper

I sign the paper
charter planes fly away
no more sit down circle
I wait for the fixing

my wife says
what you waiting for
come fishing with us
just like the old days
