Unfortunate Time


Bills you can not pay
Nowhere for your head to lay
When will you eat again
Your husband locked in the pin
It rains and you're soaked
Your dreams have been choked
Your children are crying
No healthcare they're dying
Time for a new career
That's what you thought last year
Keep your job and save every penny
Problems arise there will be plenty
Faith has been tested far too long
Now your heart sings a new dark song
You've lost everything you own
Can't payback that humongous loan
Hopes are all that's left
Before you walk that road to death
You watch as good citizens turn to crime
As they can not handle this unfortunate time
