Empty pockets of a poet

Empty pockets of a poet
by Roy dela Cruz

bills are due
tuitions too
I need to write a poem

can life's worries
be vanished in verses?
not a chance!

at least I was able
to do something
from something where
I can't do anything

verses don't pay bills
money does
I got too much of one
and none of the other
