could not get the happy faces

I understood I needed the money

being beset on all sides with demands

gas electric water tithes on tiles

but I could not get the happy faces

going off to do the work days ahead

each day doing much the same

rinse repeat see you tomorrow same time

living for the weekends to let it all go

hoping thinking there must be

something else to do to get by

the rich people flaunting in the movies

magazines newspapers doing fine

wondering in dreamless nights

how does a body get some of that?
