Paying the rent, for sure - a rhyming poem.
|A fixture in this great economy
Are the costs that make heads spin,
Pedaling the opportunity,
Likely ending lives of kin…
Exiting the human factor
Lives the strength and salty dues -
Makes the structured, noble actor
Link to mayhem pride construes.
A heightened sense of greatness, learning
Is a saint, a narrow peace -
How much shall a light of earning
Catapult a storied lease?
Leads to current, latent struggles,
Were it not for trust, empirically,
In one’s promise, from these angles.
Caught in headlights, efforts clinging,
Have the most abundant claims.
People’s torture, horrid singing,
Likely strive for glowing aims.
That fruition, seeking solace,
Offers status, stays uncouth.
Heaven is a healthy promise,
Those ideas further truth.
