People struggling to pay bills
not enough money to go round,
some queuing for foodbanks
and down to their last pound.
People struggling to get by
finding it hard to make ends meet,
and because many can’t pay the rent
they get evicted and end up on the street.
People struggling even those with jobs
as their wages are far too low,
but the working class are ignored
by a government who doesn’t want to know.
People struggling to understand
why a footballer who kicks a ball,
can get paid obscene amounts of money
while their weekly income is so small ?
People struggling and becoming angry
at football’s affluence and wealth,
while the likes of Rooney are becoming richer
many are hungry and in bad health.
People struggling and in despair
as they worry how they can pay,
but please spare a thought for Wayne Rooney
who’s only got thousands to spend each day !
