    Soup and sandwich

    People anguished

    Economic woes

    Leave us famished

    Cornucopia of needy

    Can't get by because

    We're GREEDY

    Soup and sandwich

    People anguished

    Economic woes

    How to manage...

    Gas too much to lavish

    Get off the HOG

    Let's get established

    "Gas too much to lavish

    That's a real rap! I can feel and appreciate the message behind this sound.
    Hopefully, we won't be reduced to soup and sandwhiches cause I got some Campbells' Chicken & Rice from the store and was finna tear that up but wasn't no chicken in it. I want to write them and tell them to change the label to Government Soup! Anyways Nice Word!

    Folks barely getting by has become as basic as soup and sandwich. How long will we only be able to scrape by? I enjoyed reading you again 1poet.
