Those Days!

Those days when the world seemed huge

life had endless possibilities

caution then was not in your vocabulary

optimistic for a long future

that never happened as money the goal

but you did not have that touch

not being a gifted child able to succeed

not get on that ladder of greed!

 

Just considered one of average abilities

tried but never made the grade

not all can be rulers of what they survey

guide society on its dodgy way

gathering the rewards with lots of money

making life perfect and sunny!

 

There have to be those lots who are grafting

struggling to make ends meet

not on expensive furniture their bums to seat

where everything its so easy to find

nor the fear of how to find that money to pay

trying to keep the bailiffs away!

 

As time marches forward at an increasing pace

many drowning in a cycle of debt

what is their chances of a balanced existence

is the question they must ponder

prices rising way above what they can afford

their survival cannot be assured!

 

There is nothing we can do but wait and hope

somebody can throw that saving rope!
