100 Issues for 100 Days: #44

#44: Over Troubled Water

Wade in the water, wade in the water, children
Wade in the water, God's gonna trouble the water


We toiled in the fields
Now we toil to pay bills
Running so fast we don't even realize we started
A mile behind

Everyday collectors calling
Waiting with raised whips
To slice into that last dollar

Do I eat, or accept defeat?
Cause it seems like lately the choice is between
The two
The two dollars that I have in my wallet
And the growl in my stomach.

Teetering on the edge of overdraft
These discounts aren't even low enough
For the little I have

In over my head
The water's rising
Breathing gets harder
But they still won't give me benefits
The betterment of my life
Is my responsibility

But I feel like a thin bridge
Over raging waters
And the cage is getting tighter
While I begin to drown
