Horror Story

they say pull yourself up by the bootstraps
all while whipping your back
can't say a thing
because then you'll feel bad
made to believe you did something wrong
even when you know you're in the right
they'll threaten
they'll accuse
a modern day story of David and Goliath
you'll start to lose hope
start thinking maybe it's you
because you have bills
and people to feed
trying to walk the line of perfection
and frustration
as if you ever had a choice
like what you do will ever be enough
but it isn't
and it never will be
because they won't ever care
for your health
or your wife
or your kids
they'll use them too
as collateral
to keep their business safe
to put you in your place
abusive as fuck until you fucking die
then they'll forget everything
as if you never existed
your name
your wife
your kids
as if you were nothing more
than a piece of shit
moving on to the next poor soul
that they can suck the life out of
