Safety Nets

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Safety nets are no longer in use,
With a proof that they protect...
Those assets now reduced to leave,
Little left to cover increasing debts.
Even a breath kept to possess,
Is difficult to catch up with when chased.

Penny pinchers are heard expressing a wish,
They had done more adventuring.
Since diminished overnight,
Has been those precious nickels and dimes...
Picked to count to buy more time.

And those retired deciding to return back to work,
Find their expertise and once valued efforts...
More disrespected as they are made to feel worthless.

Safety nets are no longer in use,
With a proof that they protect...
Those assets now reduced to leave,
Little left to cover increasing debts.
Even a breath kept to possess,
Is difficult to catch up with when chased.

Fading and outdated are those safety nets.
And gone like time that moves on to foget,
Who had what with assets left.
