Friday Feelings

The 16 hour days are full; Of judging every gain, And every misspent penny It is the darndest pain.' Our working lives are greased By debt That gathers its weight and to our loss I hit the bed at ten in the eve; But by 3am I pitch and I toss' I awake to another grim grey day See the struggling masses race I know its only Wednesday; But Friday is coming apace.! And Friday is a spending day In Britain as in 'elsewhere.' And that will be OK for 'some' Who live I am not sure where? I know I’ll use my shrinking means The groceries must come' I think of some; who have taken A quick Quid loan at apr 1735%..! Now for only needing £200 they will be; (Finished and done.) ©Joe Maverick 27-2-2018
