Just A Paycheck Away

Some outsiders think
the government pave the streets in America with gold
still to this present day,
some might even go
as far as to say they thought
money grew on trees
in our perfectly manicured backyards,
everyone must have one, right?
it’s embedded in their brains
to just ask, ask, ask
every chance they get.
To them, the currency is just a phone call away
and a suitable way to make a living.

Just wait till they step
foot on this magnificent soil,
where most people are a paycheck away
from being homeless.
