City Pushing - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Life-taking events multiply when you're dealing with the city.
So many charges and fees for so little service.
How does anyone expect a person to eke out a living if government officials insist on taking what little hard-earned money we each have left?
It doesn't make sense to one who grew up so poor.
Why does the City Of Phoenix take away people's existence and push them over the edge?
