#100poems Four: Swept Away

I swept the streets
You paid me just enough.
But then they said
The budget must be cut.

You told me that
There was no work for me
The government
Could not afford to pay.

I have no job
They soon had me enrolled
In jobless club
Now I must earn my dole.

I would not mock
The goals you have to meet
I have no job
But still I sweep the streets.
