Are we rich yet?

Hey, dad. Are we rich yet?

You've been working twelve hour shifts

Six days a week - we must be rolling in it.

Can you ask mum

When she gets home from nightshift

If we're rich yet?

I ask my aunties, who I spend

Three days a week with,

But they can't answer me.

Something about mortgages

And cars, and taxes

And the downturn,

Whatever that is.

My parents work really, really hard;

Are we rich yet?
