Vicious Circle

Laid off my minimum wage work
Qualified for about half of its pay
Got a part time job as sales clerk
To help make it through the day
As I juggled to manage the bills
And still have enough money
To afford my prescription pills
The tax collector was not funny
Describing the meagre earning
As just way too much benefit
Not even factor in cost of living
Or the stress of making ends meet
Let real concern for citizens show
Then genuine care they’ll know
