Made up poem based on reality-both emotionally and financially.
Shoes worn down to the heel
People tempted to steal
Bologna served at each meal

Screams, cries, and crime
Bad reports morning till night
No end immediately within sight

More companies downsize
Unemployment claims rise
Neighbor tries to take his life

She can't pay her phone bill
He can't get his meds refilled
I'm leaving the house I built
