Funny Spoken Word Poem | Welfare

Man I hate getting government checks

Those grocery stores are packed, on the first through the fifth

Getting summoned to the county office to update your info

As you approach the front of the line, it starts moving real slow

Can a few hundred dollars, last the course of a month

That’s why I haven’t been back since receiving it once

How about we invest more money, to pay decent wages

It’s the 21st century, I shouldn’t need county assistance, if receiving a paycheck


Time Travel

Tick… Tick…Tick the sound of the time clocks counting down our lives, you know it seems like those sand box days where just yesterday
I remember oh so vividly, those playgrounds on which we would play

Tick…Tick…Tick junior high in Mrs. Wilson class I would leave often on a restroom pass, oh there’s things I would change if I could go back
Skipping school with high school crushes, mad at mom and holding grudges

A firm believer that everything happens for a reason
So I’ve learned not to regret the things I’ve done
No time to worry about  the past, or directing a future that hasn’t been cast

In time the things are due will come, so let go of the past your running from
Insightful words to encourage a few, how fast time goes if I only knew
Plan for the worst and hope for the best, this way you’ll be disappointed less
