    Rants
    Rage
    Rage
    Rage
    Hurt
    Shame
    Defeat
    Dispair
    Dispair
    Who cares
    If we fall?
    Rebate check
    Income tax
    Social Security
    Paycheck
    Gone to the tank
    Gone to the tank
    Someone say Horse and buggy
    Horse and buggy
    Because me and my Cadillac
    My Cadillac
    is divorcing
    Cant afford to pay
    To pay
    attention
    My mind is suspended in thoughts of how to get ahead
    Tell me is our hope dead
    Foreclosure
    Exposure
    Homelessness
    Carelessness
    Once a President asked ask not what the country can do for you, but what can you do for the country
    No disrespect to the President of before
    But I've given more
    More than I should
    I'm down and out
    Utilites is more than my pay
    The gas price is more than my pay
    And the world wants to know why crime is up
    No jobs
    No security
    No such things as purity
    When it comes to feeding your kids
    Tell me what crime would you commit to keep from being
    Homeless
    Car less
    No food on the table
    Would you pick up that fifty dollar bill next to your co-worker feet?
    Would you write that bad check to keep your lights on?
    Would you flim flam your grandma just to put a little change in your pocket?
    It's sad but true
    Could this be you
    I'm hungry
    Would you trust me around your refrigerator?
    I'm broke
    Would you trust me around your pocketbook?
    I'm sick
    Would you trust me around your medicine cabinet?
    Tell me would you
    Senior Citizen cant get help for their medicine
    Have to take their whole living just to pay six hundred dollars of medicine
    Tell me is that right
    is that right
    Iraq
    Iraq
    America
    America
    America
    Where are you?
    I'm dying over here
    I'm dying over here
    I'm dying over here
    Buried in debt
    My sins are being swept
    as I ponder what I must to do to make it................:SuN004:

    to be continued.........​

    Not having what you need, not just what you desire, but what you need, can make a person do things that they never would have imagined. Horrible to be put any where near that position. Strong write poetess.

    Unleash the Dragon!

    You got the breath of fire wrath but your words are also the breath of life about what we facing every day we breathe the summer's hot air. We have reason to be smokin and I find it interesting that everybody sees this, "Rebate check
    Income tax
    Social Security
    Paycheck
    Gone to the tank
    Gone to the tank!'

    Personally, I think they can keep the check but since I done already paid for it I think I'll take it anyways. I'm a cash it whole too so I can feel a little better about the situation! In the meanwhile Nevar Never stop Ranting & Raving for a Change! Who knows we might get another check!

    Wow Sister Nevar....Powerful .....Very

    Taking all I can
    To get to a Higher way

    This Llife is Gettig harder
    Day by The Day

    I know, You Know...
    There HAS GOT TO be a Way

    But who is Willing?
    To face that Way?

    We've got to Fight the RIGHT PEOPLE
    Save this night and Day

    The More we fall into the Darkness
    The More the Darkness waves

    We came to be Strong
    We have to press on

    TO save ourselves from the Worse
    The Worst of Day that are on

    Save Me I call
    Save Us They Call

    Can we Pray Together at least?
    Or will we let them Fall?
