this week, a grandma died

who held a house together with two shoulder pads and pride

she was foreclosed on not months ago

the bank took the house but the cancer took her soul



sarah oh sarah your grey wigs hid your hair-a

so well, my dear

hope your daughter finds a way to pay the rent

now that you have parted from here



this month, bail-outs prevailed

white-collars loosened while wall street exhaled

the banks got subsidies

and sarah lost the only asset of her family's



sarah oh sarah your grey wigs hid your hair-a

so well, so fine

hope we learn a new way count

maybe sideways not upwards next time



this week a grandma died

who put our phone number in a bible verse

and left it there to hide

she buried her sons not seven years ago

and watched her granddaughter outlive

what the doctors had foretold



sarah oh sarah your grey wigs hid your hair-a

so well, my dear

you taught us so much about survival

before you left here
