FOWC with Fandango — Precarious


It’s August 9, 2022. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

    Financially precarious
    Repayments increase
    Banks raising interest rates
    Just doesn’t cease

    Living costs rising
    Inflation goes up
    Nothing’s now stable
    It just doesn’t stop

    so precarious
    for everyone
    these days
    can’t find a way
    out of this maze
    glad to be labelled over the hill
    not a time to be young
    starting out looking for thrills
    i’ll ask my cat
    he’s very smart
    and matter of fact

    Looks like Donald Trump is in a precariouser spot, today.

      The “news” was really yesterday. I’m sure you saw Rachel report on it (amongst others), Fandango. A few minutes ago, I clicked on this conversation because the guest or featured contributor is from a prestigious university in D.C. (one of my sons went to a summer legal thing, where this man was involved, approved by his school during high school). I had to wonder why he’s characterizing things this way. I’ve seen him on msnbc or cnn before; he’s not generally a right-wing nut. And we already know Donald Trump hasn’t been a cooperative subject.

    Life’s just way to short,
    … to grumble continually about the precariousness,
    Of the way our finances need to contort,
    This way and that without any gregariousness!
    Our wallets and purses oh they do so strain,
    …. To configure what to spend the pennies upon,
    To glean a bargain and cease the pain,
    … Perhaps the answer is to laugh and turn to pawn …
    Oh l say! Do you mean naughties,
    …. or to trade in and exchange for cash?
    Is there money to be had with saucy skin stories,
    … who knows for sure, but there’s coins in another’s trash!
