Patience,Goodluck or Merit?

1
I am Dis(u) Fortune


my Father, Ill(i) Fortune


we've always been poor


and fear we always will 


but Father says


if we have Patience,


we will get Goodluck



I struggled for an education


and struggled till graduation


but still I have no job


I'm still waiting on Patience
maybe I can have Goodluck

I tried starting a small business


but there's always power outage


plus fuel is expensive


my friends tell me I need Patience


so Goodluck can find me


I didn't have a wedding


but at least I'm building a family


my first son attends school


even if his only uniform is torn


if we adopt Patience,


Goodluck will change things..


 

The country is several months past 50


but i'm far older than her


I give no thought to pension
my graduate son should feed me now


Yes Patience all these years


Goodluck is surely coming..
Well, my son still has no job


and I'm tired of waiting


we've been advised to change our names


as if that's the problem!

To hell with Patience,


Goodluck can follow!


What happened to Merit?

Jig-saw of complete thoughts. Sea of emotions, each tidal wave; spewing form. In this world of haves and have nuts, I chose the latter.
