Quagmire

We were sinking in the quagmire.

The dreams of silence didn’t last.

There were rumors of a rescue.

But the rumors faded fast.

The Lawyer called banker.

The banker called his Mom.

They haggled on deliverance.

And handed me the final sum.

I’ve been working at the car wash.

I no longer have the blues.

Got that monkey off my back.

And my baby has new shoes.
