Can I Get a Witness?


Can I Get a Witness?
by sassynyc

Ain’t the way it’s s’posed t’ be
This sin sick world of lust and greed
It takes and takes, never giving back
But for agony and grief
Left to long for relief

It punctures and drains
(Like the nocturnal beast)
Of life, of love, of pleasure, of peace

On occasion it delivers, if fate allows
A miserly crumb, a strained handout

When with outstretched hand
You’ve come to borrow
Beware the return of your debtor
With interest tomorrow
