Oh, yes, I know today is Groundhog Day,
But what it celebrates is far away
From those concerns with which I have to play.
The money's flowing out, not coming in,
And I am balancing on wires thin
To try to cover debts; I may not win
The fight that doing so always entails.
Against all things, the interest rate prevails,
No matter how much each against it rails.
I suffer now for young adult delight,
And many I know will say it is right
That I do so, that I now must fight
To stay afloat. I do not know why
I feel I must, but I feel I must try.
