I just want enough

used to hear them mutter

sitting around the table

playing cards drinking away

I just want enough

can settle for not being rich

couple of holidays a year

nice car house mebbe a boat

& they’d laugh together

like all this was a dream

as if enough existed somewhere

there at the end of the rainbow

& I wanted more for them

mebbe a bit more being kind

not kicking everything they had

cats dogs kids wives each other

to pieces picking up on nothing

claiming the world was crazy

out to get them

& wondering where

it all went wrong
