Money

I thought I was broke

real broke

It felt like I was

scraping my insides out

to pay bills

negative figures

I sing rap songs

about endless money

I dream

money sandwiches

eating money

Then I met a man online

who went through the system

real young

was homeless

for a while, then I’m sick

when I call my mum

and she gives me $100

for pills and tampons

I still feel broke

but not as broke as some.

I still sing rap songs

about having 99 problems

and sometimes I wake up

with a 5c coin on my tongue.
