There's Always a Down Side

by C. Allen Rearick

MY girlfriend
called me
at work
in an excited frenzy
to let me know
she got a raise

an extra 3,600 dollars
a year

I told her
that was great
and that I was
excited for her
as well

she said I didn't sound
too thrilled
like something was
bothering me

I said I don't know
then hung-up
the phone

and then it
hit me like
an acme anvil

she now has 3,600
more ways
to pull herself
further into
