Five dollars is burning at my hand
all it now means to me is so hard to understand
a simple gift might brighten up her face
a simple gift might mask our fall from grace

Five dollars meant nothing to me when
poor boys lived yesterday tomorrow was our friend
and all my friends they said they would be Trump
and no one looked as dust poured out the pump

Five dollars reminds me what is true
poor boys get what's left that is nothing new
it's a simple trick a hint a glimpse a taste
and I would give each bit to see her face
light up again
to see her face light up again
Ipad app pressing my tech limits; folk sound with squeeze box optional could be more rock with a band; lower middle class fragility
