Head of Household Complaint
“Oh these bitter house owner! I paid rent just a week ago and asked
Them to fixed my leaking sink! They ought not to fix! Toilet flood the house
Yet not to call the plumber! They care not the renter but only money! Shall thunder
Lightning strike them!” I angrily spoken in frustration
Pulling my hair out flipping through bills
“water bill, gas bills, phone bills, house rent, and the list goes on!
Blood sucking government pay me a penny and take away the rest!
Hard working people get stomp on by the rich! Little ant crawl and suffer
But shit they aint careless to look! In a wink of an eye, my cash all gone
And save me less than a dime!” I complain
“Feed the children, these little creature! Sucking up the flesh of me!
Awaiting months after month, see money in a sec, the next thing ya know
Its gone!” complaining to myself getting food ready for lunch
“Oh what the heck! Life suffer me in hell! When will I get a chance to live happily!
My trouble heart ache with such responsibility
To cook, to clean, to teach, to protect, to pay, to feed…
Why death won’t come to me!” I complain in frustration
“These children of mine running around like rats!
I get them clean for the minute and the next they out dirty again!
They leave me in grave by a pile of dirty clothe and dish!
Oh to whom can I open my wound to? Life bitter me such suffering!” I mourned
