....RENT IS DUE
by Harry Brotzman Jr.In Hell, RENT is due every day
.. no excuse
The master of hell will guard over you now.
Those painstaking years of deceit and abuse;
Now, he insists, by the sweat of your brow.
TIME is no more on your side to stall or cry,
Hasten your concern, no satisfaction now.
Your time is consumed upon demand by him;
The master: deceiver, liar, cheat, now bow.
Your RENT is due as eternity daily grinds;
No compensation, no relief, no breaks in life.
Daily demands by smoky, choking, harsh finds;
Pain, strength dwindling with each sigh - strife.
Daily, fiery intense struggle, your mind twists;
Your thoughts, your actions, all going confused.
No benevolent hand to turn in this risk;
No help anywhere, no source known, just diffused.
Your RENT is due, on your human soul;
You are having your part in the anguish of all.
The forgotten, the lost, the ruined, the foul;
Hell has no goal, no comfort, no future stall..!
