Be Thankful or Else

by Geanice Gee

You all really should be thankful for all that you got
Never know when your fortune can end up in a melting pot
Melted, exchanged or giving away on an auction sale lot
Repo man can come to your home & change your deadbolt locks
Lose all your assets including your 401(k) plan & stocks
Then leave you crying & hollering on a bed full of rocks
No front door anymore so no one will knock
Ex-best friends sit around & laugh & mock
Coming in late for work & now your pay has been docked
Your boss is fed-up so your job comes to a sudden stop
Living outdoors & saving up your new earnings in a sock
Diamond rings & gold chains you are now forced to hawk
Living as a panhandler all because you forgot so you rot
Life ends & nothing is written on your tombstone plot
Be thankful or else…tick-tock…tick-tock
