Overdue BILLS BILLS BILLS
A long day at work bills piling up high I just wanna sit down and cry,cry,cry. My water bill is one hundered twenty one bucks I really wanna ask is water this much. The babysitter decided to quit today I owe her a whole three weeks pay. Oh! how I need my lights to read and write. They turned me off right in the middle of the night. Creditors are trying to call my number but the phone is disconnected and it won't be on until December. Damn! I'm so overdue sometimes it will be cheaper to live like the woman in the shoe. Can't get a loan not until the next ten years. I still owe them back pay from the last past five years. Struggling isn't at all easy it can bite you in the butt and give you a good beating. Borrowing money is way out the question. I owe so many people they are ready to start fussing. Overdue is all my bills that are unpaid. I just wanna enter myself in the house for the insane! I just have to take one day at a time and learn to pay my bills right on the dime.
