No Where to Turn

Ring in the New Year I heard the cheer of celebration

Hang the banner proclaiming the failed hopes and dreams of those who have lost their jobs, families, hope

Sound the hurrah for my new home under earth’s dome

Gnash my teeth on the morsel I’ve been given from a system that failed when I needed it the most

Kudos to all of those who have successfully leached off a system designed to help people who faithfully contributed

Smile back at my chagrin

A round of applause for those ignoring aid and stashing their bounty

Forget the children who are relegated to lines for healthcare and unpalatable food

Turn away from my appeal for help

Shun my need

Reject my abject countenance as I have discovered

No where to turn
