The Ship Of Fools!

Live it out.

The whole damned lie.

Maintain the image which others won’t see.

With credit where credit isn’t due.

In debts deep hole, dig deeper.

A new car, “the other just wasn’t us.”

“What ever did the neighbours think?”

“It was two years old!”

“And the payments almost affordable.”

“Not to worry, our ship will come in!”

The lottery cheque windfall

Riding high on the spring tide

Of unpaid bills.

The ship of fools!
