I need money,
I had me some.
Payed all my bills,
and now they're gone.

Same BS story every time.
Say, why can't I have money
that are all mine o' mine?

Do I have to dish out,
and keep giving away?
Where is that winning lottery ticket?
Oh, please say!

I need eating and leisure to.
So tell me how,
now won't you?

If I send up a prayer
high in the sky.
Will my knee bending efforts
still keep me shy?

If I roll up my sleeves,
dig in on an extra shift or two.
Is that enough to
see me through?

But what of them raised
day care bills?
They're gonna push me straight
out of 'the hills'.

I wish I had a grandma livin'
at home.
Cause if I did then all my money
wouldn't be gone.

She could take care of my kids
while I work an hour or two.
Now that would be enough
to see both my money and my kids through.

education, dedication are the two key prerequisites for making money today -- then you'll need a bit of luck to find a decent paying job -- from there on it is work, continue to learn, and save -- it is the only way I know to keep part of your money as most of it goes to the tax guys -- I bid you joy, love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael

With an income of $1000?!
outgoings of $1001 = sadness.
outgoings of $999 = happiness.

I was once told to save 10% every month of my income. Thus, within a year you'll have a months pay in savings. In a decade, you'll have a years salary in savings.

AS we know, the lottery numbers are 3, 7, 12, 17, 21, 39, bonus 5. But it won't make yer happy.

The lyrical lilt of your poem was so perfect, I enjoyed it immensely! Your words... hard hitting and right on. Keep writing, Elisabeth; I like your style.

FLUSH! by Tom Kitt

Flush! takes you on a poetic journey that touches many areas of human experience. But, in spite of the diversity the poems have a common resonance or theme that is ancient and agel..
