Want versus Need

I want to pay my rent

but I don’t need to.

I want to eat healthy

but I don’t need to.

I want to have nice clothes

but the old ones falling apart will do.

I want to send my kids to school

but I could try to let them be truants for awhile.

I want to be a good parent

but I don’t need to be,

apparently anyone can be a parent.

It is merely whether you have the money

to afford them before

society deems you incapable

and takes them away.

Either through force

or disease

or poverty.
