WAKE UP!

You wake up
It’s a new day
Yet you still have
So many bills to pay

You push it off
“I’ll do it tomorrow,” you say
But when you wake up
You decide you still don’t need to pay

A week passes
And you hear a knock at your door
When you go to answer
You shrink to the floor

It’s an eviction notice
For you haven’t paid your bills
You regret your choices
And are forced to head for the hills
