Five tomatoes away from devastation. The bullies bully me. They give big breaks to
corporations; While taking unfair shares from citizens and cutting our pensions and Social
Security.I have no security! The Arabs store on the corner is selling wine,beer and
cigarettes. Sending their tax free money home to fight against our boys. His taxes are
deferred,and when time comes to pay; The business is now switched into his cousins name.
One tomato is two dollars...so I am five tomatoes away,and I haven't had a salad today. I
am being raped,while they are getting breaks. I get reprimanded severely,they are always
Shaking my tree. I said "I have no money" I am not living here tax free. The levy goes
into effect on the thirtieth day,so I budget sparingly,and have had no salad today; I am
five tomatoes away,from homelessness and devastation; I wish I had a break like the big
One day before I leave this planet I hope to
find dignity. And eat a Salad everyday and live life healthily,and never again have to
worry about being Five Tomatoes away. Getting old around here is horrible; My senior years
unpleasant....I paid my dues to the I.R.S,now they want another present. I hope to survive
another day,while they tax my pension; And so I pray....let me eat another salad, in spite
of being .... Five Tomatoes Away! So yes I've had no tomatoes, I've had no tomatoes today.
