So what is up with those skinny jeans?
Skinny jeans and their pockets
Pockets that hide so well the few pennies that have been saved
Skinny jeans and their saran wrapped legs
Skinny-jeaned legs that end at sneaker covered feet forever seeking work
Meaningless work that matters only if fuels the means
A means to an end is what drives those sneaker covered feet.
Sneakers that are always walking, sometimes running
Sneaker covered feet attached to skinny-jean covered legs.
Seeking the finish line that is never where it should be
A finish line that requires more distance to be covered
Mile after mile these sneakers tread, always adjusting to the path
A path filled with bubblegum and grime
Bubblegum chewed by jaws that continually pop and blow flavorless gum over and over again
Grime that covers hands that are always reaching shakily
Hands reaching through layers of grime seeking help, help that never comes
Help embraced through empty promises that leave grime-covered hands cold and vacant
Yet there is hope, just look inside those pockets of yours and you will find those pennies
Pennies saved and hidden away from the world
Pennies that were hidden deep inside the pockets of your skinny jeans.
