desperation (poverty)

Today I pawned over $300 worth
Of dvds for $55

I was so desperate for the cash
I didn't tell them to take their offer
And shove it somewhere unpleasant
Instead taking the money and crawling
Out of the building feeling
Like I'd just whored myself out
For a packet of cigarettes
When I don't even smoke.
