the cost of living….

the cost of living

as i walked up
to aunt bea’s porch
i noticed
a local politico
to engender
the 1.7%
cola increase
hoping no doubt
to solicit
a contribution
for his
upcoming campaign
when aunt bea
put her hands
on her hips
i knew
he was in trouble
she said
stuff at the grocery store
cost 3.3 % more
than last year
medical services
are going up 6.8%
most countries
that have our kind
of tax dollar input
twice as much
to social programs
so child
if you’re waiting
for me
to say
thank you
i hope
you’re not
your breath
