The Rent is Due


For every person, in life's broad view,

There comes a time, when the rent is due. 


Pay now or pay later, it's all the same.

We all must pay to stay in the game. 


Much is expected from he who gains.

Much too, is expected from he who wains.


Life is free, or so they say.

Stop paying the rent, and you will pay. 


The cost of living is not in the rent.

Like unfinished mail, never sent.


It builds up a mount of cost.

Pay a little or a lot, before all is lost.


So before all your time has come and went.

Please, be sure, to pay the rent.
