Pay Day Hell

Today is pay day

But for poor me

It is Hell Day -

So I have lived to see

It weighs heavily on my mind this day

So sluggish and suffocating is the air

Even the vocal birds are not singing this stormy morning

They sit on the electricity line

Shoulders hunched as if in mourning

The phone squats at the corner, so silent

A sickening punch to the tummy

Is its ring on this day sometimes so funny.

And the unannounced visitor on the doorway

To hell and back

Takes the frightened heart wildly racing.
