‘Now’ turned into this –

Now
turned into this
no loves
no ideas
no wonders

Then a very lengthy chapter two

No money
turned into this
no food
no toothbrush
no toilet paper

No money
turned into this
no car
no rent
no house

No money
turned into this
no cigarettes
no beer
no coffee

No money
turned into this
no power
no shame
no care

All turning me over, lying face down into a pauper’s grave
