I wrote this a while back, when the economy was at its worst and every day was a struggle
No Difference

This land of Honey Boo Boo politics

Facebook Twitter social networks

Credit card debt and financial pressure

Hitting people with alcohol poisoning

Jumping off city piers naked

Puking in burger bars

Pornographic vandalism

Drugging us with lies

Dying right here before the lords of chaos

Night streetlights burn my eyes

Money holes in my clothes

Smoke coming out of my nose

Contraband sincerity

Disease riddled corruption in the system

No more time

Who ever you think we are?

We are an oppressed depressed nation

Ruled by hoodlum bankers

In tracksuits and hoodies

Alcoholic redemption

Reputation in the gutter

A bleak and dark dream

Of unemployment and emigration

We watch it crumble

For money rules this world

And we make

No difference
