Budget Day

Ten Euro in your pocket
No food inside the fridge
One Euro for a Mars Bar
The breakfast-to-lunch bridge.
A coffee would be lovely
Fresh from the shop machine
Two Euro for a small one
You need that much caffeine.
Go to the supermarket
Head for the reduced line
Microwaveable pasta
For dinner? Fine.
Check the change remaining
A beer would be nice
Four Euro asks its question
Beer or bag of rice?
The hops come out as winners
Two cans take all you've got
Start again tomorrow
And try to worry not.
