Rickety Rhyme

rickety man, rickety house
quickly ran, saw a mouse

stately woman, in stick hut
prickly fish, coconut

Man meets Woman half the way
Woman asks Man want to play?

sticky situation, sticky plot
Man tells Woman rather not

Woman looks Man not well hung
Woman tells Woman not much fun

Man tells Woman another time
Woman goes off end the rhyme

America 2009

America has traded in his Mercedes
For a beat up, General Motors car.
It has a fender and door of different colors.
It leaks water, burns oil and won’t go far.

America is standing at unemployment,
all morning, just to see the clerk.
Diligently, he pursues positions,
along with millions looking for work.

America is loading up a U-haul.
His wife and kids are moving to their aunt’s.
A sign in the yard says “For Sale - Bank Owned”.
When he bought it, he didn’t stand a chance.

America is standing at an off ramp,
wearing jeans he bought at Goodwill,
a cardboard sign saying “Help my Family”,
collecting dollars from passing automobiles.
