Poem: 'Where did all the money go?' by Tony Sokol

Where did all the money go?

Where did all the money go?
I had some in my pocket.
Don't even got those pants no more.
So broke I had to hock it.

Yeah I'm selling everything,
my stocks, bonds, Chevrolet.
Last week I had a sandwich.
Cashed out my 401(k).

Saw the president on the news last night.
Cleared my head a bit.
But I saw something in his eyes
that said, it's my job now. Oh shit.

Can't afford to have more kids
might sell the ones I got
If I wasn't scared they'd tax it
I'd try selling pot.

No, can't afford to have more kids.
Can't even afford to jack off.
I invested in some online porn
but they invested with Madoff.

I might lose my job.
I might lose my house
Where did all the money go?
Have you looked behind the couch?
