Fingers

Fingers worked
to the bone
from trying to
provide a home.
Body starting
to get tired.
But it’s too late
you’ve been fired.
Too old now
to start again.
Fed up being
treated with disdain.
Lawyer came calling
but he is too late.
Bankers already
sealed my faith.
Thrown out on
the street.
With no time
to get back on
your feet.
