The cost of living

The cost of living
Will always rise
When more money
Our dollar buys

An increase in years
To finance your car
You might pay if off
When driven too far

The price of houses
Are out of sight
Perhaps a roommate
You'll need to invite

Bottled water
You need to drink
A price to pay
If not using the sink

Utility bills
When hot or cold
Much less savings
You have to withhold

Health insurance
You certainly need
Your monthly budget
This cost may exceed

Your income tax
May likely increase
Unless your job
Happens to cease

Credit cards
Will keep you afloat
The promise for change
The people did vote
