i can bitch with the best of them…IOW….I saw 2 chairs pulled out around a table never used and it pissed me off

My beer is flat
its cold outside,
but sunny, but
its still
cold.
ripped my jeans
shoes got
wet,
wife is in bed
she won’t come out,
it’s saturday
but tomorrow is
sunday,
and then there is
monday,
gas is high
bills are paid,
we’re broke,
most people i know
are not,
most people i
know
are.
There’s a fly
that won’t
fuck off,
the dog is whining
to come in
the house,
car doors open and
close outside,
i hope no one is
coming to
my
closed front
door.
-there’s more
good times,
than
money ahead,
and it
don’t look like
there
are any good
job prospects ahead,
the fucking fly
is back,
the house is quiet,
and i have to
pour this flat
beer down
the
drain
