A Cheap Trade

23 Jul

American tragedy

Thought I missed you, but realized
you’ve been gone many years.
So long in fact, I wonder why
that I would still shed tears.

You made a choice to disregard
all that you have been taught.
Then sold yourself, to later find
it’s not all that you thought.

Thinking you’d caught a big fish who’d
provide security,
only to find you’re now a slave
your life’s blood is the fee.

I hate to say this but I know
the worst is yet to come,
when seeds you’ve sown in dis-regard
take root to then blossom.

I’ll ask you now before that day,
” Do you still ‘ like it ‘ ?” or
are you just holding your breath at
what you know lies in store.

For you left all behind in search
of lame security,
only to find that he provide’s
not but anxiety.
