Venezuela

 

Who knew

 

Who pays attention

 

Largest oil reserve in (within)

The world, and all of it these

Days for less than naught

 

Oil prices are low, and leaders

Of oil-supply can’t cooperate

 

So while I pay less to fill my

Car’s tank with gasoline for

Which (I’m sorry) I’m grateful

 

Those who live in another

Part of America are starved

Out of sugar and flour for

The day and even toilet paper

 

We can laugh for what we

Throw over trees, which only

Makes a nervous joke out

Of excess

 

It’s complex, for I need

Cheaper fuel for the car—I

Need cheaper for everything,

Such is the life of the older

And disabled and, at best,

Partially employed

 

But, generally, I can get sugar

When I need it, and the other

Things

 

I have access to help

 

And I am not a nation living

Not Venezuela

 

Without
