Beat poet Tony C compares his daily struggle to survive to that of primitive humans

words and music by Tony Caravan (BMI)

It’s one thing to be a wage-slave
it’s another to be broke
When you bring in less than things cost
you have to jump through hoops
(just to survive)

They constantly raise the rent
Up the insurance payment
Charge you interest and late fees
And threaten to turn things off

All you want is to stay in your house
To have running water
and a flushing toilet
Keep the heat on
And have a little food to eat

It’s a non-stop struggle to survive
this 21st Century Hunter-Gatherer life
When you find yourself constantly behind
Though you work harder and harder

You juggle the bills
Try to keep the utilities
from being turned off
Forget about luxuries
you’d be happy with the basics

It’s never enough
no matter what you do and pay
They’re always raising the prices
Just enough so you can’t afford to pay

It’s a non-stop struggle to survive
this 21st Century Hunter-Gatherer life
When you find yourself constantly behind
Though you work harder and harder

It’s a non-stop struggle to survive
this 21st Century Hunter-Gatherer life
Bargain hunting for this
gathering coupons for that...
