Quicksand

The bank has refused

to extend my overdraft.

My cards have been declined.

My resources are drained,

because of him.

Soon there shall be more

legal action. My lawyer

has explained, kindly, that

he’s not a charitable organisation.

I am in financial quicksand.

How do I tell my son

that he can’t go up to London?

It is the plight of women to fret.

I must pawn my jewellery,

the gold watch my first husband

gave me when we were married.

I will go on.
