Walkin on Air

Daily Bread

Why do I even bother anymore?
Is there a point to consider here?
Labor is no longer worthy of its hire:
a world full of lies that underscore
tightening of the belt to be austere
is akin to hope sinking in mucky mire.

How shall I deal with such uncomely facts?
Where can I go to get true relief?
Everyone around in life either steals or cheats;
yes, daily commit unspeakable acts
besmirching truth, honoring the thief!
Only, the problem is: I need my per-diem eats!
