plans & schemes

I’d have to hustle

in those early days

create plans & schemes

write training courses

most anything might help

earn me a living

& I had some success

nothing breeds bright ideas

better than poverty

& I had some failures too

people would want to latch on

hold on in the hope

I’d bring some prosperity

their way too

but not being broke enough

to think of their own new

they’d just as easy fall off again

if something brighter newer

came their way happened along

& it took me a while

that losing people like these

was their problem

not mine

though to be sure

it took me a little while

to get there

for somebody

supposed to be bright
