on the sidewalk today
outside a jewelry store
a sign read
“is your white gold turning yellow?
if so, come in for a new shine!”
a few days ago
I saw a headline on the news
said, “more than a billion people hungry”
around town I see Lamborghinis
Aston Martins and Maseratis
but people come into the bar I work at
ask for $2 PBRs and leave
when I tell them the keg is kicked.
I look up at the sky
and smile at the gods
because I don’t have any white gold
that’s turning yellow
I’m not hungry in the streets
an oil change on my jeep only runs me $20
and I have a beer fridge
full of fifty cent cans of beer
I look up at the sky and smile
and the gods smile back at me
