Last Meal

Scraps in rusted trash
Scent the air with misery
Clutching his pink slip

    Ouch! So many seem to be in this perilous predicament. The image is haunting. Excellent expression.

    Good one, James. We have a school district close to Saginaw - where I live - that owes their teachers 80 thousand dollars and cannot complete the school year. As of late, the powers that be are reluctant to include them in the State Plush Fund. Bummer! Thanks for looking me up. Love, daver
