Debt

Debt

A mortgage, the school fees,
the credit card loans,
those secondhand jet-skis,
our two mobile phones.

the shiny new car means
we're drowning in debt,
we can't afford beans
I have told you but yet

you constantly say
that you've got it all planned.
Well, have it your way,
but it's head, bucket, sand.

  1. I just placed an online grocery order. Prices at Sainsburys have shot up almost 20% from two weeks ago. We’re fortunate; we can afford the increase. Many can’t, and they’re looking at indebtedness in order to eat. I’m glad to be turning off the heating for a few months now.
