NaPoWriMo Poem #27

The Accounting
By Edward S. Gault

We met Florenda at the Bank of America mortgage office.
She examined all of our finances-bank statements then credit checks!
This would be the second time we saw our lives laid out in raw numbers.

'our lives laid out in raw numbers' - sadly that has been the experience of too many.

Thanks Edward, this is spot on, and sadly a true reflection of what so many people are going through in these current times.

Nicely reported!
