Pay Day...

In anticipation of my disappointment of a paycheck, although it didn't start out to be about that.  Clearly my failings are on my mind.

12.6  Pay Check

Belief brings action
but what action is for having
except that which decays
in the light of another day

spent making people happy
under the eyes of a god
with the power to cast you
out and down

away from what is known
and loved and familiar
into that cold grey 
miasma of the market

unsure of whether what is sold
is an opportunity
or just another mirage
designed for crushed hopes

and the latest thing to disappoint
when truth comes knocking
with its hand clenched
around a two figure pay check.
