Ugly Thieving Trolls

Will there ever be enough?

Just when the pot of silver fills up to the top, and you believe you might have succeeded in getting there, the plug is pulled.

And standing at the spout with his bucket ready is the hungry troll.

His eyes leering, boney hands dipping greedily into what was yours, and into what you earned.

Promises of giving back are shouted as he runs away shrieking excitedly into the woods, clicking his heals together.

Your pot bare, his promises empty.

There are people to pay, food to buy, supplies to find, but nothing left in the pot to purchase it with.

The troll says he left you enough.

While he laughs from atop his mountains of gold and silver.

But there’s never enough.

    Sounds like you are writing about the federal government!

    I hope that things are okay.

      I am totally writing about the federal government.
      I’m furious with the way they take and take and take and expect people to continue to survive.
      They are not for the people.

      Thank you!
      I’m so frustrated with this situation and I’m not sure what to do about it.
      I don’t do well when I feel out of control

    They never stop at a pound of flesh. They always want an organ as well. Sorry, mama.

      I haven’t got much more.
      BUT if they could chew some of my fat I’m okay with that.

    Stupid trolls.

    I hope you don’t become influential about them now.

      If I did I would write to Klout and tell them to take those ugly trolls off of my influence.

    I’m sorry for you, but you’re not alone, there are trolls everywhere, even here in paradise we have them. LOL. And they might even be worse then the ones you are facing. Sigh. But we, I mean you and me, and everybody else are going to make it.

      It frustrates me even more that it is the social norm now that we all struggle.

    Sorry, friend. You know I can relate to how you feel. I keep telling myself that it won’t always be this much of a struggle, that someday we will feel more comfortable.

      I really hope that’s the case. I’m so overwhelmed with this right now that I am having trouble with the thought that someday we can relax.
