Change is somewhere.

A few cents to spare
change is somewhere
cluttering up surfaces
rarely brought out for purchases.

Spot me $150
to give back to that debt for me
and then I’ll rummage through
just to find you
a few cents
add it up to several bucks not worth rent.

I’ll donate to charity
when the billionaires are down to their pennies
counting their change on the counters
evading the debt collectors
although I’d no longer need to
because that would be poverties cure.

We find comfort
in those living the hurt
sympathy isn’t what anyone needs
it’s a broken system it feeds
as we share our spare change
the billionaires write it off as all is fair.

It’s not that I don’t feel
it’s that I live penny to penny without a steal
I try to stay ethical
I try to stay practical
and yet the bills pile
making my mind go wild
why must we be fed all these ads
and then treated bad
for buying in?

If we didn’t buy in…
you wouldn’t be a billionaire.

Thanks for reading.
