Frenemies For Life

Frenemies For Life

As far back as I can remember

we have had to chicken scratch

hissing, throwing a few punches

biting, pinching, scrimping and saving

our way to fight the good fight

trying to overcome poverty’s

blight thrust upon us

but try as we may

try as we might

it eludes us no matter how hard

the punch is thrown in this fight

the repeat lessons we have learned

surely this road we have outgrown

but so far, no such luck

for it has strangely become

now the best of friends

we have ever known.

this poverty level of life

we just cannot rise above

an enemy claiming friendship

owning us for the efforts

we have sown…
