Magic Box

Delve into my magic box
Put on the coat therein-
Assume your new identity
And let its life begin
The shoulders may weigh heavily
You 'll walk with altered gait
A lesser mortal are you, now,
And shackled to your fate.

Find the shoes of Another Man
Walk until they fit
And you shall find your lowly place
But dare not rise from it!
You will be judged by others
Who once were judged by you,
And pray this fait accompli
My magic will undo.....

Unemployment Shame

Rows and rows of boxes
All of them the same
With rooms and rooms of people
Each without a name
Hearts that beat, though breaking
And smiles that mask the pain
Of fading hopes of sunshine
Through windows drenched with rain.
Once lovers, now not speaking
Except to lay the blame
For broken dreams and the poverty
Of unemployment shame.
Empty cupboards and drunken sleep
Are all part of the game
But hungry babies wake them still
On mornings all the same.
