Can't Shake Hard Times


Hard times
gotcha by the collar
right up in your face
with its sour breath
and spittle

Hard times
pours from the sky
like it’s never rained before
floods your basement
with its guttural gulps

Seems like hard times
is counting your mistakes
then multiplying
by a factor of 4
some days 400

What to do with hard times
but eat them for breakfast
lunch and dinner
as hard times is all
you can afford anyway
