The Middle Class Woes

Poem by Shirley Marie Jacobsen

When the middle-class stretches and grows
someone knows! Even though the best decision
may rock the pillar, shake the beam
loose the temporary foundation
the middle-class still are! The middle-class shakes the rafters,
peers through the roof, stretches—yearning
to grow after the roots are shaken—tough,
beyond what once was the middle-class!

    “Daybreak” is the first most beautiful
    Light in the morning we see.
    That GOD has made to enjoy
    For you and me.(Report)Reply
