FINANCING AVAILABLE
(1/16/17)

society
flips
the interest meter
at birth

we are
bouncing budgetary
resources

nothing
more

fees

taxes

penalties

payments

premiums

dogging us
throughout
our lives

chewing
chunks of income
from our financial
flesh

until
we are limping
lepers
of monetary loss

when our
capital clocks
eventually
stop ticking

our time
runs out
as well

we are
relegated

regulated
to retirement

exiled
to minimize
our fiscal
risk

by a system
that hopes
we have invested
wisely
in a burial
plan

that our
mourners
are suitably
frightened
to consult
their pecuniary
priests

to add
a little more
to the collection
plate
