I don’t know about you, just about me
Has anyone checked the economy?
I’m on social security, my husband’s and mine
I opened the New Year’s envelope only to spy
An increase of $20, whee!
But along with it came an increased Medicare fee
What I wonder is why it’s deducted
For I also have the bank withdrawal abducted
Along with the extra insurance you need
Which is another bank account bleed
Rent, food, taxes increased, yup
No wonder revolution pops up
I consider myself on an average base
Which all these decreases will erase
Extravagance? I have to laugh
Don’t they separate fact from chaff?
