Hard Times - Poem by Christine Kerr
In this recession, the hard times begin
No one knows when it will all end
A few lucked out, playing their cards.
For them, life won't be hard,
Played my cards, with talent that I lack
Wished I had more, hidden under my hat,
A witches brew and all their goo,
Couldn't make life easier for me or you.
The trick is not to feel the despair,
The time has come to show we care
Break down the wall, depend on each other,
Be thankful, for all my sisters and brothers.
All the electronics are here to stay,
No power will come, selling on E-Bay
Wished I could fix this huge mess,
Life feels like a game of chess.
Times are tough,
Seen it before,
There just wasn't as much,
To throw out the door.
Life was good, when I was busting at the seams,
For now, my warmth comes from eating pork and beans.
Wished this recession would gave me the break,
The hell with it, tonight I'm eating steak.
