can i borrow fifty cents?

can i borrow fifty cents?

A Chapter by Shy Joe

I found change in my pocket


penniless at life's vending machine
staring at friendships cuisine
drooling at the people I can't get
wishing i could afford a relationship
shaking that damn mechanical device

come on gravity, do me right
give me a free one tonight

walking by every break
seeing the goods that reside
hard not to fill of hate
when I long so hard for whats inside

guess i will go hungry again
this cafeteria full of sin
just head outside
a packed lunch for a has been

sitting outside on this curve
i guess this is what i deserve
eating life's ham and cheese
dreaming of selection number E 403

stray dog wants a bite of this sandwich
giving me release from my anguish
the
licks and companionship are profit
looks like i found change in my pocket

This is crappy. The creative juices have not been flowing well lately.

this is a real hard knock life and i was beginning to think there was no happy end but it does end on a high note, or at least opens a window. gratitude for what you find in this new companion, rather than the dwelling on what is not there. i really liked this, easily relatable and flows smooth like a song.
