Donations are essential to keep Write Out Loud going    



To survive... to pay bills

Working every hour God sends to pay debts

Pay taxes pay national insurance

Pay this person that person 

Home insurance ..Life insurance..

Pet insurance insurance 

To stay on the road 

To travel to work 

Fuel to fill the tank 

To get to work 

Pay the lady pay the man 

Pay pay pay 

All in place so we don't pay attention 

Imprisonment unnoticed

Conditioned not to notice

The cost of living on the rise 

The price of living is life 

Blessed with children

To pay someone else to raise them

In order to go to work 

To enable the child minders to pay for child care for their children 

Qualified strangers 

All to distract us 

Conditioned to not notice 

Twice i've wrote this 

Pay in.. pay out.. pay off 

Pay back 

It's pay back time 

Riots? of course

All about the cost 

Pay close attention to your intuition

All the riches can't buy back time we've all lost

Sound familiar, Sarah! In one hand, out the other! A well composed piece
