The Economy
Late at night I watched a You Tube unwind
A man said he had no desire
He sat in a grey kitchen, dull chrome...a yellow tile floor
He sung lowly,
a song I couldn't hear
Then he spoke from where he stood
looked at the world below
they took his job
time had robbed him too
age was no more a last friend
tomorrow the home would be gone,
like his wife before
all he had were You Tube names
anonymous, to the man with no desire

Very sad, SC! I came to your blog this morning to see what you had new. Always something interesting here.

Unfortunately this story is probably repeated by many people right now in our country. It must be hard to go on.
