Photo Challenge #49 – Blood Money

Pawel Kuczynski 49

The morning alights

Without a spiritual consensus

Poverty may question my means

But success rarely compromises.

I do what I must

To live as I please.

 

Another amniotic soak in the till

I don’t need to feel

If the marrow spilled

Comes from another man’s bones

I do what I must

To live as I please.

 

I have a family

Whose infrequent names fall

So oft from my calender

That I dare not meet their accusations.

I do what I must

To live as I please.

 

My Sisyphean days stoop

Behind a veil of secrecy

Full pockets leave no space

For the warming of hands

I do what I must

To evade the poverty inside.
