A Day in My Life

Tuesday morning, if I am lucky
I am having black coffee in the morning
I get my pay cheque on Wednesdays and the queue is short
I cash my red card and say hello to the beautiful ladies and say “sound to have in tens, please.”
For the number of pounds is very small
Please, gov, can we have some more?
For the way is long and my energy is running low,
Oh, how do we survive on such minimized
The cash in hand buys less fruits and veg
The days in bed get longer instead
We skeet the yellow labels at the supermarket so quickly
Embarrassed if we can be spotted
We forget to brush our teeth and we smell of B.O.
It is not for the faint-hearted as we may not have long
Don’t you get it
I have no money
