I Can't Afford To Live This Way - Poem by Alice Perfect

Can I afford
what surrounds me?
Can I afford
what ties and bounds me?

Can I afford the stuff I buy
Can I use it up before I die?

Can I afford what really counts?
Can I afford without checks that bounce?

Can I afford a Mercedes Benz
A Ford I drive until it ends?

Can I afford a life full of stuff
Can I afford a love that's tough?

Is it all bought with debt on credit?
It will spin out of control if I let it.

What can I afford not to do?
LIVE life with love and no fu-fu!
