What I Need To Know

-

What can I do with such a scam

That Social Security put on my ass?

How can I wait 'til Monday after school

To find out about what happened?

How can I do well on my test?

Or, even yet

How can I study for it?

I'm pissed

I'm angry

If I lost Social Security

I lost Medicare

And then it's back to generic medz

And even if I don't

I still end up with $20 less

And how could've I worked $7 next month

When next month ain't even here yet?

I don't get it

There must be some kind of "reasonable

__explanation for all this"

But what?

Just what?

Tell me now

'Cause I need to know
