secret life of Marco's

The sound of talking all around
everyone having there own conversation
enjoying the food
enjoying there night
Busy Marko runs around
Dirty dishes piling up
When Marco walks by
they all disappear like magic
clean dishes are put away in a flash
Marco keeps Armands alive.
never a flaw
starts at 4 ends at 12.
never complains
pay day comes around
He picks up his pay check like everyone else
$486.00 every two weeks.
Marco gets on his bike and bikes away
bitter winds blow on his face
the bike ride is brutal
down town Arlington to Box wood
4 miles
every day rain or shine
he walks in his apartment after a long day working two jobs
and greets his 4 children he supports with his $486.00
every two weeks. School food and even soccer
he is the master of penny pinching
When Marco puts his kids to bed
the silence of the house is over whelming
he finally gets a moment to him self with no one to please
no one but himself
he puts a CD on and lulls himself to sleep on his "bed"
the couch.
