Easy Street=?Wall Street

Location

Wall Street

Stock market

For some people 

it's their

Easy Street.

Whenever I think of that phrase,

I think of Annie

and the song

sung by Hannigan

and her brother

and his girl.

Just like I grimaced when I heard them plotting,

I grimace when I hear the words

WALL STREET.

When I hear those words, I think of

MONEY

The STOCK MARKET

The GREAT DEPRESSION

The STOCK MARKET CRASH

BLACK THURSDAY (No, not in the shopping, almost-Black-Friday sense)

I feel dislike, 

distaste,

and the boilings,

the beginnings,

of a very strong 

Hatred.

I feel frustrated

at all of the people

who have so much more 

money

and fortune

and easiness

in their lives.

I struggle

my family struggles

Each and every day

of our lives.

I don't know if I'm going to make it to college

without being in debt

For the rest

of my life.

So.

I strive.

I write.

I apply.

For scholarships

To peoples' better natures

and I hope

one day

I don't have to 

worry so much 

about money

and finding my way 

to Easy Street.
